§ Ms. Ruddock
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) if he will make it his policy that any agreement under section 105 of the Education Reform Act 1988 which has yet to be finalised will contain a provision specifying that, in the event of the agreement being terminated for any reason, the city technology college or city college for the technology of the arts shall be treated as discontinued for the purposes of the agreement and section 105(5) of the Education Reform Act 1988; and if he will take steps to have such a provision included, by way of amendment, in any agreements already in effect;
(2) if he will take steps to prevent a city technology college or a city college for the technology of the arts from being converted into a fee-paying school other than by his consent, without there being a requirement that any capital funding previously provided under section 105 of the Education Reform Act should be repaid.197W
§ Mrs. Rumbold
Section 105 of the Education Reform Act 1988 provides for my right hon. Friend to enter into an agreement with any person to establish and maintain a city technology college (CTC) or city college for the technology of the arts (CCTA). A copy of the model agreement for this purpose has been placed in the House of Commons Library. If this agreement were terminated, for example, because the college charged fees, the provisions of section 105(5) of the Education Reform Act would come into effect.
