Asked which Minister was in charge of the academies programme now, and did the removal of Andrew Adonis mean that the Prime Minister had gone cool on them, the PMS replied that Ed Balls was the Secretary of State dealing with schools policy, and Jim Knight remained the Schools Minister. Andrew Adonis had also put out a very robust statement last night knocking down some of the suggestions being made about the future course of the academies programme. Just so we were all clear, the Prime Minister was absolutely committed to pushing ahead with the academies programme in the same way that had been demonstrated in the last year.
