Will the Minister elucidate a little more on the responsibilities of the LEAs? I am concerned that certain LEAs may want to resist pushing forward with accessibility plans, because they have other priorities or simply cannot be bothered. To do so, they might deliberately inflate the costs of accessibility. What methods will be used to ensure that the estimated costs of accessibility plans for specific schools are realistic, and are not inflated to suppress development?
