Discipline students – M.P.

This is from today’s Daily Post:

A Liverpool MP yesterday called for disciplinary action to be taken against the 250 sit-in students at the city’s university.

Mr Tim Fortescue, Conservative Member for Garston, said the citizens of Liverpool were angry at the ‘arrogant and disruptive action’ of the students, who have occupied Senate House for the past 6 days.

“The public is now entitled to expect the university to announce very shortly that its disciplinary procedures are to be invoked against the disruptive minority of militant students. […]

“Confidence that universities can keep their own houses in order has been shaken by recent events in Liverpool and elsewhere.  This confidence can and must be restored by the actions of the universities themselves”.
