Gove: Morgan removal 'good corporate practice'
Education Secretary Michael Gove has defended his decision to replace Baroness Sally Morgan as head of school inspectorate Ofsted.
Mr Gove told Andrew Marr that Baroness Morgan was a "fantastic person" and there was always a "need to refresh" heads of public bodies.
The move has been criticised as a political decision, and drawn a 'furious' response from Liberal Democrat Schools Minister David Laws.
Mr Gove denied a partisan agenda, saying the "only pattern you can see is appointment on merit".
