2018 Budget response

29 October 2018

Responding to the Budget 2018, Dr Tim Bradshaw, Chief Executive of the Russell Group, said:

“It was encouraging to see the Chancellor highlight research as one of the most important drivers of future UK prosperity and improved productivity.

"Russell Group universities are keen to play their part in building a strong future economy.

"In order to do so, and to realise the ambitions set out by Government today, we need sustainable funding for higher education and a good Brexit deal which supports continued collaboration with our European partners and maintains a dynamic flow of people and ideas.”
