The commitment that I can give is this. If people look at the Foster report, the Leitch report and what the Government have said, they will see that there is a consistency about our belief that the Learning and Skills Council should continue to develop and evolve. The idea that we make progress by upping sticks, ripping up structures and starting again is not the way forward. We should be very firm in that view.
