Conservative schools minister Lord Nash accidentally told peers to visit the Department for Education’s “webshite” today – prompting titters up an down the red benches.
Lord Nash was sternly rejecting claims by Labour’s shadow education spokesman, Lord Watson, that the schools system was underfunded.
“Schools that run themselves efficiently have ample resources to have a broad curriculum,” the education minister said.
“I’ll invite the noble lord to go on the department’s webshite,” he added, before quickly correcting himself. “Website.”
