HC Deb 26 April 1990 vol 171 c270W
Mr. Straw

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on progress towards the establishment of a city technology college at Woodingdean, Brighton.

Mr. MacGregor

[pursuant to his reply, 24 April 1990, c. 146]: I have been reviewing the progress of the proposal by the Michael Faraday Trust to establish a city technology college in Brighton. My period of review ended on 23 April and I have decided that I must withdraw my financial support because of the trust's failure to raise adequate private sector sponsorship. I have so informed the chairman of the Michael Faraday Trust.
