I move amendment No. 8:

In page 19, line 32, to delete “, as it sees fit,”.

Section 22 sets out the functions of technological universities established under the Bill, including the provision of programmes of education and training, the making of awards and undertaking high-quality and relevant research. In keeping with the distinctive mission of these institutions to provide high-quality, enterprise-focused higher education for their regions, the purpose of this amendment is to ensure those technological universities engage fully with regional stakeholders in the effective transfer of knowledge arising from research.
