§ Mr. Don Foster
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what plans he has to change the arrangements concerning the numbers of student governors in institutions of further and higher education. 
§ Dr. Howells
In respect of further education, governing bodies may include a student governor and we have no plans to end that arrangement.
We shall be considering what the National Committee of Inquiry into Higher Education has to say about student membership of institutions' governing bodies in its report which is expected shortly.
