Following the Government's response today to the report on Higher Education Funding and Student Finance produced by Lord Browne of Madingley, Sir Alan Langlands, Chief Executive of HEFCE, said:

'We look forward to working with the Government, BIS, universities and colleges and other partners to ensure an orderly transition to the new arrangements. This will involve informing legislative change, leading the implementation of the new funding settlement, ensuring the continued effectiveness of the dual support system and working with others to establish regulatory arrangements that are transparent, fair and proportionate and that protect the interests of students and taxpayers.'
