Lord Storey: .... These have been at various times of the day and I always notice, and am always disappointed by, how very few people attend those debates. If you come to a debate on foreign affairs, defence or Brexit, the Chamber is packed but when you talk about young people, who are our future, there are empty Benches. I regret that. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Massey, for securing this debate on...

Lord Storey: ...Lady Walmsley has met, indicated that to accord them equal treatment would require primary legislation, adding that there was no chance of the Government finding parliamentary time until “all the Brexit stuff is over”.

Universities: Financial Sustainability - Statement (11 Feb 2019)

Lord Storey: ...additional funding to schools and colleges to cover the shortfall created by the revaluation of the teachers pension scheme. Will the Minister tell us why not universities too?

Higher Education - Motion to Take Note (19 Jul 2018)

Lord Storey: ...other seems strange to me. We have heard plenty about the quantifiable economic benefits of a strong HE export market, but I would like to return to the soft—if that is an acceptable word in our Brexit-focused world—benefits of being a world leader in higher education and in education more widely. One potential threat to this market is our exit from the EU, if that ever comes about....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Jan 2018)

Lord Storey: ...Baronesses, Lady Massey and Lady Lister, and the noble Lord, Lord Russell, talked about the rights of the child in yesterday’s debate.

Most...

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

Lord Storey: ...goals. The curtailment of freedom of movement, coupled with an already complex visa regime for non-EU workers, threatens to undermine our scientific research base. Indeed, just the uncertainty over Brexit is already having an effect. As Dr Jo Beall, director of education and society for the British Council, told the Education Select Committee on 25 January, the UK is already losing out on...

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

Lord Storey: ...in sport science and that our UK universities are first class and among the best in the world.
