Mike Charles worried over special needs protection

Children with special needs in Wales will be worse off than those in England if a new law is passed, a leading education solicitor has claimed.

Mike Charles said it was unclear whether a planned replacement for statements of special educational needs would still be enforceable by law.

He said improvements seen in England were also missing from the Welsh plans.

The comments come as consultation ends on the Welsh government's white paper on additional learning needs.
