The situation at London Met is clearly serious and I sympathise with the students and staff at this time of uncertainty. However, responsibility for resolving the financial difficulties properly falls to the funding council and the university. Ministers cannot be involved in those discussions. I am though kept informed of developments and remain confident that HEFCE is acting appropriately in the best interests of the university and the rest of the sector.
