Clarification needed on where valleys HE funding comes from - Randerson

July 20, 2009 12:17 PM

Commenting on the announcement of a £16.5m project to provide university education to people in West Wales and the Valleys, Welsh Lib Dem Shadow Education Minister, Jenny Randerson AM said:

"While this money is welcome, I would like to receive clarification from the Minister of exactly where the funding is coming from.

"If this is genuinely new money to improve opportunities for some of Wales' poorest communities then that is great, but if it is money from the existing pot, or if it results in cuts elsewhere in the funding to improve educational opportunities, then the news could still be welcome, but full transparency will be needed."
