Education Secretary Michael Gove has defended his decision to replace Baroness Sally Morgan as head of school inspectorate Ofsted.
Mr Gove told Andrew Marr that Baroness Morgan was a "fantastic person" and there was always a "need to refresh" heads of public bodies.
The move has been criticised as a political decision, and drawn a 'furious' response from Liberal Democrat Schools Minister David Laws.
Mr Gove denied a partisan agenda, saying the "only pattern you can see is appointment on merit".
