‘Gov’t incompetence cannot be allowed to hold back young people’ – Emma Hardy on ‘digital poverty’ report

Emma Hardy MP, Labour’s Shadow Universities Minister, commenting on the Office for Students’ ‘digital poverty’ report, said:

“It is unacceptable that any student’s education should suffer due to digital poverty. Government incompetence simply cannot be allowed to hold back young people’s futures.

“Having failed to address digital poverty for pupils when schools closed, the government must learn from these mistakes and ensure that no university student is unable to access the education they deserve.”
