At our last Question Time I raised the case of Greenhead College in Kirklees, which is worried that continued cuts in post-16 education are threatening standards. The Minister said that the Department was
“looking at the resilience of the sector.”—[Official Report,
Vol. 649, c. 14.]
Since then, however, it has been revealed that colleges will be landed with a pensions bill of £142 million by the Treasury. When will the Department stop looking at the resilience of the sector and actually provide further funds?
