Appointment Of Toby Young To The Board Of The Office Of Students

EDM number 742 in 2017-19, proposed by Caroline Lucas on 08/01/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Higher education and Students.

That this House deeply regrets the appointment of Toby Young to the Board of the Office of Students; notes the seven principles of public life, including selflessness, integrity, and objectivity, known as the Nolan principles and set out in the Department for Education's application guidelines; considers the stream of sexist, misogynistic, homophobic and otherwise abusive or derogatory tweets and public comments by Mr Young over a period of many years to reflect a fundamental lack of judgement and integrity wholly incompatible with the Nolan principles; believes there to be no shortage of alternative candidates for membership of the Board of the Office of Students; and calls on the Government to rescind Mr Young's appointment.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
