No HE Bill in 2012?

January 24, 2012

The Telegraph is reporting that the government may have decided not to proceed with a higher education bill in 2012.

I’ll post more later but for what this probably means given news since the turn of the year see this earlier post.


Andrew Fisher raises an important issue about the place of Hefce and the need for some primary legislation to resolve its status before 2014/15 when the grant “runs out” for some institutions.   That either suggests that an HE Bill could appear in 2013 or bits of needed legislation such as this could be bundled up with other parliamentary business.  Given that many across the sector have been calling for a pause, perhaps the former option is most likely.
