Higher education bill: MPs set to continue scrutiny

The committee of MPs chosen to conduct more detailed scrutiny of the higher education and research bill will meet for the first time this week.

The bill, which cleared its second reading in the House of Commons in July, will now be discussed on 6 and 8 September by a smaller committee of MPs including Jo Johnson, universities and science minister and Gordon Marsden, shadow universities minister.

The MPs will hear oral evidence from expert witnesses. Those giving evidence include: Leszek Borysiewicz, vice-chancellor of the University of Cambridge; Mary Curnock Cook of the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service; and Alison Goddard, editor of HE, sister publication of Research Fortnight.
