Liberal Democrat Members are very supportive of these amendments. They seem perfectly sensible. If Sandy Leitch has recommended that post-19 provision needs to be employer-led, it seems sensible that the regional councils should be required to consult with the sector skills councils. I shall be curious to hear the Minister’s response to the amendments, but we are very supportive of them.
