The Government White Paper on Higher Education was published on 28 June and, as had been trailed in advance, requires Universities to publish data about their services and the student experiences. It should be noted, however, that the move towards greater transparency and openness in the public sector had been initiated by the Labour Government so it may be argued that this provides an opportunity for the sector to demonstrate the value of the services it provides and we should welcome the opopo9rtunity to take a lead in publishing data openly, with the White Paper providing a useful tool to overcome institutional inertia.
