On March 12th, Stephen Hammond, Conservative MP for Wimbledon asked:

“The Government are rightly committed to levelling up and creating opportunities. Two small changes to the admissions code would change the life chances of so many summer-born children. Could we have a debate in Government time on making changes to the admission code, to benefit the summer-born?

Jacob Rees-Mogg, Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons responded:

“With children born in June and July, I am well aware of the issue that my right hon. Friend raises. I think an Adjournment debate would be a suitable place to begin, but that is in your hands, Mr Speaker, not mine.”
