Dear Kent County Council,
In the second reading of the Home Education bill in the House of Lords.
Lord Soley stated:
"I have had help from across the board, but two of the councils that have been most helpful to me on this are Hampshire and Kent. They have given me information that I hope that the Government will see in due course."
Please provide a copy of all communications (if any) specific to the Home Education bill from or to your local authority between 2016 - 2017. This includes, but is not limited to; Lord Soley, the House of Lords, other local authorities and MPs.
Please redact any identifiable information under S40.
