Time to discriminate

She said employers should take into account a candidate’s background during the recruitment process. Greening felt this would really help social mobility and pointed out that there is software available to help companies who want to go down this route.

Greening, who went to a comprehensive in Yorkshire, quit the cabinet earlier in the year following a reshuffle.
