Rumours of BSF suspension are quashed
The agency charged with delivering the government’s ambitious Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme has rubbished claims that the initiative has been halted.
Partnership for Schools (PfS) has issued a statement quashing a report in today’s Telegraph that said ministers have stopped BSF to allow them to review the £45 billion programme.
PfS chief executive Tim Byles (pictured) said: ‘BSF has not been halted, as has been misreported. A forthcoming consultation with local authorities will consider the best order in which the remaining local authorities will enter the programme.
