Assembly Written Question 17929/17-22
To ask the Minister for the Economy to detail (i) when she last met with NUS-USI; and (ii) whether she will agree to meet the organisation in the near future.
Answer: On 14 October 2020, I had a very productive meeting with representatives from NUS-USI, at which we discussed ways in which my Department could support students during the Covid 19 pandemic, as well as ensure that students’ voices are represented in discussions which concern them. I remain open to meeting with NUS-USI and other representatives of students, diary permitting. Students and their views are very important to me and my officials have been in regular contact with NUS-USI to discuss a broad range of further- and higher-education related matters, which is in addition to the significant volume of correspondence which I regularly receive on their behalf.
