The IRU calls on the Government to work with Senators on its higher education reform package to agree the changes needed to meet university needs and satisfy Senators’ concerns.
The revised Higher Education and Research Reform bill Mark Two, tabled in the House of Representatives makes some of the changes required. However important issues remain to be addressed. For IRU to urge Senators to pass the Bill we need Mark Three.
“The IRU thanks the cross bench Senators for their willingness to consider the issues with the reforms and argue for improvements. We look forward to continuing to assist them understand the revised Bill and its consequences” said Conor King, IRU Executive Director.
