A leading accountancy firm has been appointed to examine the collapse of Wakefield City Academies Trust but the government has failed to say whether its findings will be published, an MP has claimed.
Jon Trickett, who represents Hemsworth in Yorkshire, was among a group of MPs who this afternoon met education secretary Justine Greening to discuss the academy chain, and the future of the 21 schools it said in September it was giving up.
Mr Trickett told Tes that Ms Greening refused to discuss what went wrong at WCAT.
He said: “There was a determined effort not to discuss how we got into this mess in the first place. I think questions have to be asked and answered.”
