A new regulator, the Office

for Students, is to be given powers

0:00:000:00:03

to uphold free speech.

0:00:030:00:04

Emily Unia reports.

0:00:040:00:09

Jo Johnson wants universities

to open minds, not close them.

0:00:090:00:12

He has criticised the practice

of "no platforming," when student

0:00:120:00:16

unions and other university groups

ban speakers with what are seen

0:00:170:00:19

as offensive or unacceptable views.

0:00:200:00:24

It's vital we uphold this principle

of legal freedom of speech

0:00:240:00:27

because it is the real underpinning

of how we progress of society,

0:00:270:00:30

how we deepen our stock

of knowledge, how we remain

0:00:300:00:33

innovative and ultimately how

we also resist injustices,

0:00:330:00:35

how the rights of minorities

to stand up and be counted and not

0:00:350:00:41

suppressed are upheld.

0:00:410:00:42

The minister wants young people

to hear and challenge controversial

0:00:420:00:51

opinions, a view shared

by the Vice Chancellor

0:00:510:00:53

of the University of Buckingham.

0:00:530:00:54

Universities must be

about letting dialogue and debate

0:00:540:01:05

happen, not suppress.

0:01:050:01:05

If you suppress people's views,

then you romanticise them,

0:01:060:01:08

you legitimise them,

you publicise them.

0:01:080:01:10

What we need to happen

at universities is the opposite.

0:01:100:01:12

The feminist campaigner,

Julie Bindel, who has personal

0:01:120:01:23

experience of no platforming,

argues the problem lies

0:01:240:01:26

with the National Union of Students.

0:01:260:01:27

Students that are polled are clearly

signed up to this ridiculous

0:01:270:01:30

snowflake attitude of having to be

wrapped in cotton wool.

0:01:300:01:33

Students tell me all the time

that they want to hear the likes

0:01:330:01:37

of me speaking against this blanket

no platforming of feminists,

0:01:370:01:39

as we are the ones mainly no

platformed, and they want to make

0:01:390:01:43

a decision about who speaks

at their university.

0:01:430:01:45

of me speaking against this blanket

no platforming of feminists,

0:01:450:01:48

as we are the ones mainly no

platformed, and they want to make

0:01:480:01:51

a decision about who speaks

at their university.

0:01:510:01:53

The NUS have yet to comment,

but their platform contains six

0:01:530:01:57

groups including the BNP.

0:01:570:01:57

Next April, the Government

is planning to bring

0:01:580:02:00

in a new regulator for universities.

0:02:000:02:01

The Office For Students

will have the power to find,

0:02:010:02:04

suspend or deregister institutions

that failed to uphold free speech.
