Teesside MPs call for school finance lessons on curriculum

Two Teesside MPs have backed calls to put finance lessons on the national curriculum.

An e-petition appealing for it to be made compulsory has been signed by more than 72,000 people.

Darlington MP Jenny Chapman and Stockton North MP Alex Cunningham have both added their support to the plan.

Ms Chapman said there was a "big gap" in what young people were taught about managing money and debt avoidance.
