Sunday TimesGovernment ICT agency Becta was highlighted as a quango for possible closure in an article on public sector savings in The Sunday Times (April12).

Journalist Richard Woods, in an article headlined "Alistair Darling swings the axe", wrote: "Should the government be spending money, for example, on the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency (Becta), whose mission is to 'utilise the benefits of technology to create a more exciting, rewarding and successful experience for learners'? If you think schools and colleges, or even students, could do that for themselves, then scrap Becta and save £38m a year."
