I move:

That leave be given to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to make provision whereby the Minister for Education shall publish an annual education impact study on the effects his or her decision to reduce the annual resource allocation in schools will have on schools, such study to include details of the names of schools affected, the impact such changes will have on those schools, and to provide for a mechanism whereby the Principal of each affected school may appeal the decision to reduce his or her resource allocation, setting out the reasons for the appeal and to provide for related matters.

Since this is a Private Members' Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' time.
