I feared that financial cuts from the Labour/Plaid Welsh Assembly Government would lead to cuts in higher education in Wales. We can ill afford these.
At present we have excellent Universities in Wales. There is a serious danger that this position will not be maintained. There is already a massive funding gap in comparison with both England and Scotland. The higher education market is a competitive one and feeds through into skills and therefore economic performance.
This is not an area for cutbacks, the government is wrong.
