To go back to that point, I know that extensive discussions have taken place but the main trade union, which is the TUI, has concerns. While it is not opposed to the idea of a technological university, there are concerns. One of those concerns is that a merger can go ahead without agreement from the staff trade union. The amendment will be to ensure that those issues are addressed before a merger can go ahead.

Who on earth would want to merge public institutions without the consent of staff? Can you imagine the mess if staff withdrew their goodwill?
