Matt Western responds to Higher Education Policy Institute and UPP Foundation polling on public attitudes to free speech at universities

Matt Western MP, Labour’s Shadow Universities Minister, responding to Higher Education Policy Institute and UPP Foundation polling on public attitudes to free speech at universities, said:

“The Conservatives are out of step with public opinion.

“Ministers have created a row over freedom of speech which panders to those whose sole aim is to hurt and offend.

“The Government must explain why they are determined to press ahead with such unpopular and damaging plans.”
