THERESA May faced a plea for more government cash for Bolton Sixth Form College at her final Prime Minister Questions.

She was told that it was under ' severe financial pressure'.

Bolton South-East MP Yasmin Qureshi MP tackled Mrs May on the issue at her final Question Time appearance at the House of Commons Despatch Box.

She said: "The Education Committee published its report on Friday stating that the Government should urgently address underfunding in further education by increasing the amount from £4,000 per student to £4,760.

"Do you agree that raising the rate will benefit the excellent Bolton sixth-form college in my constituency, as well as many other colleges that are also under severe financial pressure, some of which are actually going under?"

Mrs May replied: "I commissioned the Augar review of post-18 education funding. That review has been very clear that more money needs to go into further education and into sixth forms.

"I want to see that happening. The next Government should give priority to education so that we can see that money going into further education and sixth forms and ensure that for every young person there is an avenue through education and training that suits them and their talents and gives them the best opportunities for their future."

Ms Qureshi said: "As usual she avoided answering the question. I shall be writing to new Prime Minister Boris Johnson about this. I will continue to raise this issue."
