Coronavirus: Only half of 200,000 laptops delivered to disadvantaged school children in two months

Just over half of the 200,000 laptops to be provided to disadvantaged school children have been delivered two months after the government pledged to help vulnerable pupils through the coronavirus crisis.

It comes after the Department for Education (DfE) announced in April it would provide devices to disadvantaged pupils while the education secretary, Gavin Williamson, told MPs the same month 200,000 would be delivered through an £85m scheme.
