I was asked by Greatest Hits Radio Norfolk and North Suffolk on whether I believe the government should intervene in the financial crisis at the University of East Anglia.
I told them that there are lots of reasons why they should:
“This will have a massive impact on research at The Norwich Research Park. It will have a massive impact on the teaching hospital at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
It will also have an impact on the economy and the Government’s Levelling-up agenda across the region, of which the University is a massive part. It will have a wider impact with fewer or no students coming in”.
“The Government need to help and find some support for the UEA because this will go against (their) objectives to invest in the East. So there are lots of reasons why they should intervene and make sure the UEA is given that support to stay on it’s feet”.
