Post-18 Education and Funding Review - Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2019)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...clearly acknowledges that all this requires real investment. We need more investment to answer the calls from business and in direct response to the pending challenges of technological change and Brexit. In the realm of post-18 education, FE has been the prime victim of financial cuts, policy churn and the insistence on market solutions. As other noble Lords have said, it is illogical,...

Brexit: Foreign Language Teaching and Public Service Interpreting - Question for Short Debate (23 Jan 2019)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...speedy learning curve to make sure I could understand at least enough German to know what the students were saying about me in class. I have always considered myself European, I am distraught by Brexit and I have always had a fascination with languages. Like the noble Lord, Lord Dykes, I enjoy learning them and do not find it too difficult, although when I became a member of the UK-Japan...

Education: Treating Students Fairly (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2019)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...can address the generations-old inequality of standing between academic and vocational education, it would be of immense advantage to individuals, the workforce and the country. In these uncertain Brexit days, we cannot afford to ignore measures to generate skills and knowledge that are vital for the UK. I once again thank the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, and the committee for such a valuable...

Higher Education and Research Act 2017 (Consequential, Transitional, Transitory and Saving Provisions) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Regret (9 May 2018)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...necessary to bring that forward if there turn out to be more challenges for this highly influential body that need sorting out. Our universities are already deeply concerned about the damage that Brexit might inflict—the potential loss of EU staff and students, which is already happening, and access to Erasmus, Horizon 2020 and the world-renowned research that we have achieved in...

English Baccalaureate: Creative and Technical Subjects - Motion to Take Note (14 Sep 2017)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...what the noble Lord, Lord Baker, said about doing computing instead of modern languages. As a modern linguist, I always bitterly regret any suggestion that modern languages are not important. Post Brexit, it will be even more important that we can communicate with our European and international neighbours and friends in their language, rather than speaking our own loudly, as is so often...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (30 Jan 2017)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ..., is not able to be here today, and I regret that I can claim no connections at all with Invergowrie. As has been explained, the Bill in its current form risks acting as a catalyst, which, under Brexit, may magnify and exacerbate the negative impact of the 50% rule on research organisations such as the James Hutton Institute. Of course, it may, as has also been explained, cause these...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (30 Jan 2017)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...this short debate. As the Minister said, we could have carried on debating this for rather a long time, but of course we will not. One of the points made by the noble Lord, Lord Mendelsohn, about Brexit is that it generates an extra degree of uncertainty, and with all the uncertainties already around, this may not be a propitious moment to be creating another uncertainty by combining...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (30 Jan 2017)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...and improving that situation. The noble Lord, Lord Broers, also addressed this issue, and the Minister addressed it in his closing remarks on the previous amendment. However, the challenges of Brexit add to the need for Innovate UK to work well, and there seems to be no good reason for changing its structures. Concerns have also been expressed by the research community that the interests...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (6th Day) (25 Jan 2017)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...to more restrictive immigration controls or conditions than were in force on the day this Act was passed. Both amendments point to the concern that restrictions on freedom of movement following Brexit will have very serious consequences for universities—both for students and for academics. We have heard from the noble Baronesses, Lady Lister and Lady Royall, and the noble Lord, Lord...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (6th Day) (25 Jan 2017)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...those on the top salaries, who will pay off their fees before they reach the 30-year cut-off, will be unaffected. The issue is even more important considering rapidly increased inflation due to Brexit. Our amendment therefore seeks to provide a mechanism to ensure that the repayment level must rise with inflation. It uses rules around social security benefit increases to require the...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Second Reading (6 Dec 2016)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...legislation and we welcome parts of the Bill, but we question the wisdom of imposing such major revisions on a world-beating sector, which is also having to grapple with unwelcome outcomes from Brexit. There are real-life concerns over the status of EU nationals, staff and students, where the Government’s stance is less then helpful, as we have heard. We hope to use the Bill to argue yet...

Immigration: Overseas Students - Motion to Take Note (17 Nov 2016)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...not disappointed, and we look forward very much to her future contributions to our debates. As we have heard, our world-renowned universities and colleges are facing considerable challenges from Brexit, with all the uncertainties over EU funding, research and collaboration. If it was important before the referendum for the UK to be open and welcoming, it is even more critical now that we...

Brexit: Impact on Universities and Scientific Research - Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2016)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ..., research, cultural and economic reasons. We must remember that scientific research is one of the UK’s strongest assets. That is one reason why my party is arguing for clarity over the Brexit negotiations and for Parliament and the people to decide, when the options are much clearer, whether the new deal is the one that the country really wants and needs. After all, the battle bus...
