Speaking to GB News Tory MP Tom Hunt revealed the Labour Party voted against an “entire” report into struggling white working class school kids because of the word ‘white privilege’. It comes as terms like “white privilege” may have contributed towards a “systemic neglect” of over 900,000 white working-class pupils who need support in British schools according to MPs. The Commons Education Select Committee said schools should consider whether the promotion of such “politically controversial” terminology is consistent with their duties under the Equality Act 2010. Speaking to Good Morning Britain Robert Halfon said it is a “national scandal” that this has been allowed to happen and that ‘it pits one group against another.’

Tom Hunt MP said: “This is over 80-pages, this is an incredibly complex issue.

“But of course the white privilege chapter apparently is why the Labour party voted against the entire report.

“Labour MP’s on the committee voted against the report in its entirety.

“Let’s be honest, this is a report dedicated, dedicated to supporting some of the most disadvantaged pupils in the country!

“And the Labour Party voted against that report!

“Ostensibly because of the two-page section on white privilege.

“And they have got to explain that to you because I don’t know why they did that.”
