Education Minister Ed Balls made a speech at the Institute of Directors yesterday. This is some of it:
It is now just over two years since we launched our Faith in the System document at the British Library.
It was a hugely important event.
And it came just a few months after I began this job â€“ in fact, the speech I made then was one of the very first speeches I gave as Secretary of State.
I was very much a novice then.
Iâ€™m now a veteran â€“ in fact, in the next few weeks, Iâ€™ll become the second longest serving Secretary of State since Kenneth Baker.
But I do believe â€“ and I hope you all agree â€“ that Faith in the System was a landmark document.
Because it was the first time that all of you and we in government came together to set out our shared understanding of the important contribution that faith schools make to our country.
And itâ€™s only right that representatives of all of the different faiths are here with us again today to reaffirm our commitment to it and look at what more we can do to build on the progress that weâ€™ve made together.
So, no change there then.
