HC Deb 11 November 1999 vol 337 c751W
Mr. Green

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what plans he has for the future funding of the Kent Education Business Partnership; and if he will make a statement. [98083]

Ms Estelle Morris

We are working closely with the National Education Business Partnership Network and others to determine how best to ensure a smooth transition period for Education Business Partnerships prior to the introduction of the Learning and Skills Council. Many EBPs, including Kent, carry out excellent work. This work will be further enhanced by the additional funding for enterprise skills in schools announced in the Pre Budget Report on 9 November.
