Following the publication of the UCAS Statistical Bulletin on Widening Participation - Edition 2000, Malcolm Wicks said:

'The government is committed to ensuring that every young person who has the ability to benefit from higher education has the opportunity to do so, whatever their background. The progress which UCAS has identified is welcome but we still have further to go. Standards are rising in our primary and secondary schools and we must build on that progress to open up new opportunities for study at the highest

levels for able young people.

'We announced an additional£20m to widen access to higher education as part of the comprehensive spending review. These additional funds will build on the excellent work which is already taking place through Excellence in Cities Summer Schools, the Sutton Trust and other university access schemes. Further details of this package of measures will be announced in the Autumn.'
