My thanks to all the Leeds students who have got in touch with me about the considerable number of problems university students are facing in the current pandemic, you can read the response I’ve had from the Minister for Universities here .

My comment on what she says is that it is all very well having appeal mechanisms but this doesn’t really address the scale of the financial difficulty, worry and mental ill-health that is being caused. Nor does it offer any reassurance as to no detriment when it comes to examinations.

I can assure you that I and my Labour colleagues will continue to press the Government on all these matters.

Thank you very much for getting in touch and stay safe.

Best wishes

Hilary Benn
MP for Leeds Central
