To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether the UK will continue to participate in the Erasmus Plus programme following the withdrawal of the UK from the EU, and if not, what assessment they have made of the impact on (1) graduate employment, and (2) the provision of modern foreign language degree courses at UK universities.
