Emma Hardy responds to Government plan to stagger university starting dates

Emma Hardy MP, Labour’s Shadow Universities Minister, responding to Government plan to stagger university starting dates, said:

“The Government has finally listened to Labour’s call to set out a plan for the safe return of students to university in January. However, the delay in providing this guidance has caused huge, unnecessary stress for students and universities.

“Ministers must now work with universities to ensure a staggered return works for all students, and universities receive the tests and support they need.”
