HC Deb 01 May 1995 vol 259 cc63-6W
Mr. Byers

To ask the Secretary of State for Education which schools have appointed sponsor governors; and if she will state for each school which companies they represent and how much each company has donated to each school. [22066]

Mr. Robin Squire

All grant-maintained and voluntary aided schools which have been designated as technology colleges are required to amend their instrument of government so as to appoint between one and four sponsor governors to represent their sponsors. Some 67 technology colleges have been designated, 52 of which have so far requested the necessary amendments to their instrument. The table names the schools and the sponsors whom their sponsor governors represent. While all technology colleges are required to raise around £100,000 of sponsorship as a condition of designation, it would not be appropriate to publish the value of the sponsors may consider that to be confidential.
