Gavin Williamson sets out priorities for regulator and confirms grant reduction

In a letter dated 1 January, published by the Office for Students on 9 January, Williamson says that the OfS will receive £1.48 billion in teaching grant money in 2020-21, down by 0.5 per cent from £1.49 billion last year. The allocation was £1.54 billion in 2018-19.
