Newspaper Headlines: Children ‘let down’ and holidays ‘under threat’ & Several of the papers lead with the resignation of the government’s education recovery commissioner, Sir Kevan Collins.
BBC News: Staff:
In what the Telegraph describes as a “scathing statement”, Sir Kevan said the allocated funding of £1.4bn for extra tutoring “does not come close to meeting the scale of the challenge”. Friends have told the paper he privately expressed “dismay” on Tuesday evening, fearing he had “let down the sector”.
The Daily Mirror accuses the prime minister of letting down children, after only “a fraction of the cash needed” was allocated to the catch-up plans. Sir Kevan has warned it “risks failing hundreds of thousands of pupils”, the paper reports……..Sir Kevan has also written for the Times, saying he had “no option” but to resign after the prime minister rejected his proposals for a £15bn package. The support announced by the government is “too narrow, too small and will be delivered too slowly”, he writes in the paper.”
It’s an ‘F’ for failed Gavin” is the headline for the Metro, which says the education secretary is back in the firing line after the resignation. Gavin Williamson admitted “more is required” after criticism over the amount of funding allocated for the plans, the paper reports.
The Guardian leads with research about the impact of the pandemic on Generation Z, concluding that Covid policies may be leaving psychological and socioeconomic scars on millions of young people. The paper has heard from hundreds of 16 to 25-year-olds from 30 countries across Europe, with many expressing profound anxiety about their future and accusing governments of failing them.
The Daily Mail warns foreign holidays are “under threat” because ministers are worried about a new Covid variant thought to have originated in Nepal. The variant has apparently spread to Europe and scientists fear it is resistant to vaccines – although one government adviser said officials should not be overly concerned, the paper reports.
The Mail also says there are fears Portugal could lose its green travel status, meaning holidaymakers would have to quarantine on their return to the UK.The i also leads with warnings about summer holidays, highlighting that the government has said it will have “no hesitation” in changing the travel status of destinations. Ongoing doubt over the lifting of lockdown restrictions in England on 21 June will also limit changes made to the “green list” of countries, from which arrivals are not required to quarantine, the paper reports.
The Financial Times leads with a story about Credit Suisse, which the paper says was warned by commodities trader Trafigura last year that the bank’s supply-chain finance funds appeared to contain a suspicious invoice from industrialist Sanjeev Gupta’s business empire. It comes as the level of due diligence that Credit Suisse performed on the funds draws mounting scrutiny, the paper reports.The Daily Star warns the UK’s warm weather could “have a sting in the tail” – in the form of 20,000-strong swarms of angry bees. “Heat makes bees go mad!” declares the paper, alongside the headline “global swarming”.
The Times says he felt he had “no option” but to quit after his more expensive plans to help children in England catch up on learning missed due to the pandemic were rejected by the prime minister.
The paper says Sir Kevan’s plans had received the backing of Education Secretary Gavin Williamson, only to be overruled.
The Daily Telegraph says the departure will pile pressure on Rishi Sunak, after friends of Sir Kevan accused the chancellor and Treasury officials of being “completely in denial” and refusing to agree to a more ambitious package.
Elsewhere, the i says some holidaymakers booking trips abroad could be “caught out” after the prime minister said the government would have “no hesitation” in changing the status of countries on the coronavirus traffic light system for international travel. Officials in England are due to review the list later.
The Guardian says Whitehall sources expect just a “handful of new places” to be allowed quarantine-free travel. The Daily Telegraph says Portugal could be moved from green to amber as experts are concerned about a rise in infections there.
Travel consultants have told the Daily Express that Malta and the Caribbean islands of Grenada and Antigua are among some of the destinations which “deserve” to be moved to the low-risk tier.
“Nepal variant threat to our holidays” is the headline in the Daily Mail, which says ministers are worried about a new mutation which has apparently spread to Europe.
The paper says scientists fear the strain could be resistant to vaccines. The head of the Airport Operators Association urges officials to focus on data and the success of the UK’s vaccination scheme.

The Guardian has a special report looking at the impact of the pandemic on Generation Z across Europe. The paper says teenagers and those in their 20s are the least likely to get seriously ill with coronavirus but the crisis could leave millions of young people with “psychological and socioeconomic scars”.
Hundreds of 16 to 25-year-olds from 30 countries have taken part in the research, with one saying they felt “pushed aside” and treated as a “problem” that could be dealt with later.
The news that Donald Trump’s blog has been taken down less than a month after it launched is covered by Politico. It says the site was once hailed by the former US president’s fans as “his return to the internet”, after he was banned by Twitter and other social media platforms earlier this year. But aides have privately admitted the blog was proving to be more of a “nuisance” than anything else.
The Daily Telegraph says it has seen a leaked government report which reveals that new tanks bought for the Army for almost £3.5bn cannot be driven safely over 20mph.
The Ajax armoured fighting vehicles are supposed to travel at speeds of 40mph. Trials of the tanks had to be paused after troops were found to have suffered swollen joints and tinnitus.
A Ministry of Defence spokesperson said the health and safety of personnel was of the “utmost importance”.
