Andy Burnham MP, Labour's Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on Michael Gove's meetings with News Corp said:

“It reveals a lot about Michael Gove’s priorities that he has found time to meet with News Corp executives 21 times since he became Education Secretary - including meeting Rupert Murdoch on seven separate occasions - but in his first seven months in the job he didn’t manage to visit a single sixth form college, further education college or special school. It’s clear evidence of a minister who has got his priorities seriously wrong.”
