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.
