Education Bill

[back to previous text]

Mr. Timms: We will introduce guidance on the way in which LEAs might use external partners. The hon. Gentleman has attached guidance to the wrong part of the clause. I accept the need for guidance, which might include model contracts, to simplify matters. On that basis, I hope that he will withdraw his amendment.

Mr. Willis: With that wonderful assurance of yet more guidance, I will take guidance and beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

It being Five o'clock, The Chairman proceeded, pursuant to Sessional Order D [28 June 2001] and the Orders of the Committee [11, 13 and 18 December 2001], to put forthwith the Questions necessary to dispose of the business to be concluded at that time.

Clauses 60 and 61 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Adjourned accordingly at Five o'clock till Tuesday 15 January at half-past Ten o'clock.
