Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said that primary school children are being crammed “like sardines” into school classes, the BBC has reported.
Corbyn stated that 40,000 primary children were taught in classes of more than 36 in England last year, and has blamed it on “broken promises” by the government.
However, the Tory party has said that Corbyn’s comments were “a massive own goal” and that the Labour-led Welsh government had overseen increases in class sizes in Wales.
The criticism follows the recent announcement of a snap general election which is due to take place 8 June.
