§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what differences there will be in legal status and powers between his proposed new academies and existing city technology colleges; and if he will facilitate the creation of more city technology colleges. 
§ Ms Estelle Morris
Details of the legal arrangements for city academies are under consideration. We expect academies to be established under the city technology college (CTC) legislation. However, there will be a different approach to funding, curriculum and the diversity of promoters.
