I want to probe the Minister a little further on the purpose of the clause. When we talk about diversity, there is sometimes a danger that we talk only about diversity of providers, when what the learner wants is diversity in the provision of courses. Few people particularly care who provides the courses; they want to know whether the type of course that they want to study is available locally and whether it is of high quality.
