A suggestion by Education Secretary Michael Gove that the Queen should be given a new royal yacht to mark her Diamond Jubilee has been rejected by Downing Street.
The cabinet minister made the proposal in a letter to Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt, obtained by the Guardian.
But a spokesman for the prime minister said it would not be “appropriate to use public money at this time”.
Labour said the idea showed Mr Gove was “out of touch”.
Good. Now, back to getting the education system working properly, Govey.
