Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what discussions he has had with Essex County Council on secondary school provision in Colchester constituency in the last month; and if he will make a statement. 
Jim Knight: My officials have not had any further discussions with Essex county council, on secondary school provision in Colchester since 22 May. In my response to the hon. Members letter to the Secretary of State on 4 June, regarding Alderman Blaxill School and Thomas Lord Audley College, I stated that the local authority was looking at the practicalities of a federation of these two schools along with Stanway School, with the possibility of an overarching trust. As I understand it, there has been no change in this position since then. Ultimately, decisions on school organisation are for local authorities.
