Reference to listed bodies[edit]

There are currently a couple of sentences explaining that Durham's colleges are listed bodies, as given in the Education (Listed Bodies) (England) Order 2013. While it's true that the colleges are indeed listed bodies, I feel the justification currently given is misleading and could be clarified.

The "Explanatory Note" of the Order (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2013/2993/pdfs/uksi_20132993_en.pdf) states two ways a body can be a "listed body":

(a) if it provides "a course which is in preparation for a degree to be granted by such a recognised body and is approved by or on behalf of that body",

or

(b) if it is "a constituent college, school, hall or other institution of a university which is such a recognised body".

In the case of Durham's colleges (and presumably those of Cambridge and Oxford as well), the reason they're listed bodies is that they satisfy (b), rather than (a). However, the current wording on the page is more along the lines of (a): "being able to offer courses leading to a degree of a recognised body". Can the wording be changed to reflect (b) rather than (a)? Something like this might do:

"Durham operates a collegiate structure similar to that of the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, in that all the colleges at Durham, being constituent colleges of a 'recognised body', are 'listed bodies' in the Education (Listed Bodies) (England) Order 2013 made under the Education Reform Act, 1988. The 'recognised body' in this case is Durham University."

The sentence beginning "This means ..." could then be removed.
