Kate Green on universities restructuring regime

Kate Green MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on the publication of the higher education restructuring regime, said:

“Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on universities, but they continue to provide the research and skills our country needs to move past the crisis. 

“Today’s announcement shows that the Government is willing to let cherished institutions fail, with catastrophic consequences for local and regional economies. 

“Instead of using this crisis as an excuse to centralise control over universities and force through cuts to courses, the Government should pledge that no university will be allowed to go bust.”
