Philip Bujak had previously given his views on a hung parliament urging MP's not to forget the early years after the election. He was quoted in Nursery World as saying 'I hope that whoever is appointed Minister for Children will not only have a background in education, but understand the vital importance of getting down to work on day one on the issues affecting the early years in this country - namely, the issues surrounding the Early Years Single Funding Formula, which is forcing many Montessori schools to either close or become fully private, which none of us wants, and simplifying the debate over early years qualifications, which for the last 13 years has been an increasing bureaucratic muddle.'
