Further and Higher Education (Access) Bill — 4 Mar 2011 at 13:41

Mark Reckless MP, Rochester and Strood voted in the minority (Aye).

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

This is a Bill to make provision to require all institutions of further and higher education in receipt of public funds to allocate places on merit, something that I understand my right hon. Friend the Minister with responsibility for universities and higher education very much supports. I hope, therefore, that the Government will support the Bill today; and if they do not I hope that the Minister for Further Education, Skills and Lifelong Learning, who I am pleased to see on the Front Bench, will spell out in detail exactly why not.

Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

The House divided:

Ayes 3, Noes 33.
