Nick Clegg talks exclusively to Classic FM: ‘Some schools do music better than others’

28th April 2015

Deputy Prime Minister and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has told Nick Ferrari about his desire to take up the drums again, and how he sees music and arts education progressing in the future in an interview with Classic FM’s Nick Ferrari to be broadcast at 7pm tonight.

Asked by Nick Ferrari if his coalition government has done enough for arts and music in education, Clegg described his vision of an easier future for schools wanting to teach those subjects:

“I think there is a great deal of fantastic music and arts across the school system. Some schools do it better than others, frankly, and some schools have had to make savings on sports and music and so on.”

“It’s why I’m so anxious that now we’re finally getting through this pretty rocky phase of having to balance the books, to be really clear with schools and nurseries and colleges that they can plan with peace of mind for the future.”
