He suggests that we keep secret files on colleges. We do not. We do hold huge amounts of information on colleges which is of value to them and for our national and statutory role. In 1996 we published our policy on access to the files. We often receive requests from colleges for information that we hold.
Mike is, of course, welcome to have a look at the Accrington and Rossendale College files.
