In a letter to The Telegraph, the leaders of all the constituent associations of the Independent Schools Council (ISC) condemn the Labour Party's plan to add VAT to school fees.

Signatories of the letter, which include Julie Robinson, the ISC's chief executive, say: “We want to see a well-funded state education system. But the path the Labour Party is mapping out would fail to raise the money our colleagues in the state sector need and deserve, while disrupting the lives and education of thousands of children whose parents work hard to fund the education they have chosen.”
