§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Education when the contract of the current chairman of the Barnsley and Doncaster TEC was terminated; when the new chairman will be appointed; and what organisations were or are being consulted over this appointment. 
§ Mr. Paice
I have been asked to reply.
The chairman of the Barnsley and Doncaster training and enterprise council has informed the TEC's board of directors that he intends to step down from the role of chairman before the end of 1995. The appointment of a new chairman is a matter for the TEC board, which has appointed a sub-group to consult local organisations, 576W including both local authorities and chambers of commerce in the TEC area.
