I am grateful to my hon. Friend for explainingwhat lies behind the new clause. It is right that when educational landor assets are sold the proceeds should be reinvested in improvingeducational provision. I know that one or two of my hon. Friends areconcerned about that, and I am happy to explore the problem with myofficials. It would probably help us if my hon. Friend and others whoare concerned about this met us so that we can pursue the matter andsee whether there is a way of resolvingit.
