Lord Mandelson must confirm that these cuts to higher education are final
"The government's proposals for cuts to university funding have shocked institutions for two reasons. First, because it had repeatedly acknowledged the role universities have played, and will play, in the UK's recovery from the economic downturn, and, second, because it appeared that, in contrast to schools and health, which have actually received increases, universities were being singled out for specified cuts.
"Lord Mandelson's clarification in last Tuesday's Education Guardian was helpful. Higher education will take its share but not more than its share. Universities UK (UUK) interprets this as meaning that the present level of cuts of £915m (which mysteriously became £950m in his article) will not rise any further. We recognise, as he does, that major funding reductions will be announced elsewhere after the election, whatever the pre-election rhetoric."
