Nadhim Zahawi condemns ban on teaching English in Iranian schools

9th January 2018

Nadhim Zahawi questions the Foreign Secretary about the banning of teaching the English language in Iranian schools.

The Iranian people quite rightly pride themselves on their educational attainment. How does banning the teaching of the English language in Iranian schools help future generations?

My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Of course banning the teaching of English does nothing to help future generations of Iranians. On the contrary, it is likely to impoverish them, and it is something we deeply discourage.
