John Graystone's article in FE Focus (TES, November 3) deserves further comment. Colleges are subject to instruments and articles of Government imposed by the Department for Education and Employment.

If the governors of colleges are to be potentially 100 per cent liable for the affairs of their colleges, shouldn't they be wholly independence to govern their colleges within the constraints of contracts for funding that they sign with public and other purchasers of services?
