Commenting on the release of the draft university governance code,Liam McArthurLiam McArthur Scottish Liberal Democrat education spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

"I welcome publication of this draft code of governance but it is clearly a work in progress. Further improvements need to be made if the code is to help meet the expectations of those who want to see Scotland take a lead in the way our universities are governed.

"There will be pressure from some quarters to dismiss this draft code out of hand, but that would be a mistake. Mr Russell needs no encouragement to take a more interventionist approach in the running of universities and colleges. The risks of this approach, however, should not be underestimated".
