Yes, the Minister is right. This boils down to who owns the contract. The difference between us is that I want the contract to be owned either by a group of employers through a group training association or by a single employer, whereas he wants the contracts to be owned by the training provider. I think that that is the essential difference between us, although the Minister may not agree.
