, BBC News:

Ministers have rejected claims they were “silent” over protests against LGBT relationships lessons.

Campaigners, who want materials about same-sex couples removed from schools, resumed protests near Birmingham’s Anderton Park Primary last week.

Dame Louise Casey accused the government of “radio silence” over the issue.

Schools minister Nick Gibb said it was “not true” to suggest the government was not working to “defuse” protests.

He said it has been “clear” that it supports schools in teaching about LGBT relationships, and officials had been working “on a daily basis” to resolve the dispute.

Protesters are calling for an end to the use of story books featuring same sex couples, which have been used as part of a programme teaching about equality.
