SNP and Green Ministers Neglect Erasmus on EU Visit

Commenting on Angus Robertson's and Lorna Slater's visit to Brussels to meet with EU figures, Liam McArthur said:

"Erasmus was a fantastic initiative which broke down barriers for Scottish students to live, study and work around the world. It was a needless casualty of Brexit.

"Wales understood this and already have a scheme up and running. Despite this offering a blueprint, SNP/Green Ministers have decided to shelve their promised Scottish exchange programme indefinitely.

"Actions speak louder than photo ops. It's typical that Angus Robertson and Lorna Slater have travelled to Brussels to bang the drum for independence but haven't bothered to do the hard work at home on Erasmus. This is an insult to thousands of young Scots who continue to lose out on opportunities of a lifetime."
