Grammar schools plan: 'Doing what's best for economy'

Plans to revive part of the old grammar school system will put learners at the heart of education, says the leader of the Welsh Conservatives.

The party believes the move would raise standards although it is not calling for a return of the 11-plus exam.

Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies spoke to Vaughan Roderick on BBC Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement programme.

He said it was important to do what was best for the economy.
