Kirsty Williams, Cabinet Secretary for Education
Today I am publishing the final report from the Review of Higher Education and Student Finance in Wales, chaired by Professor Sir Ian Diamond. I am grateful to Professor Diamond and to all the Panel members for the time and effort they have dedicated to the Review since it began in April 2014.
I will be making a statement and taking questions on the report in this afternoon's Plenary session.
Having endorsed the underlying principles contained in the report, I now need to consider the practical implications of implementing its recommendations. The Welsh Government will therefore discuss our approach with Her Majesty’s Treasury before finalising our formal response.
