Labour and Cooperative MP for Feltham and Heston Seema Malhotra MP was joined by Sadiq Khan, Labour Mayor for London, in a tour of Hounslow's recycling facilities today.
I am writing to the Chancellor and Secretary of State for Education Government to ask the Government to reconsider proposals for school funding following the Budget announcement. I am working with Brentford and Isleworth MP Ruth Cadbury on this issue which we are raising in Parliament.
Could you put your name to the letter below?
Dear Rt Hon Justine Greening
I am writing to raise my concerns about the impact of the Government's proposed National Funding Formula.
Our schools are finding themselves in the difficult position of having to deal with greater pressures on their budgets due to inflation, increased employer national insurance contributions, the impact of the apprenticeship levy and the rising minimum wage.
I am writing to ask the government to invest more funding in schools, and in particular to provide an additional £335m per year (1% of the DfE’s schools budget) to ensure no school loses funding as a direct result of the implementation of the National Funding Formula. Our children deserve the very best education and this will make a huge difference.
I look forward to your reply.
Seema Malhotra MP
Labour and Cooperative MP for Feltham and Heston

Seema Malhotra, Labour and Cooperative MP for Feltham is demanding action from the government to help local business facing a big jump in their business rates bill.
Feltham and Heston MP Seema Malhotra has called on the local community to sign-up to support a new community initiative Hounslow’s Promise which aims to increase education attainment, employability and social mobility of all the young people of Hounslow.
The NHS is in crisis yet the Government doesn’t have a plan to ensure hospitals in West London have the resources they need. On Saturday Seema Malhotra MP and Feltham and Heston Labour Party members were gathering signatures in Hounslow for Theresa May to get her to give the NHS the resources it needs.
