The Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney made a recent statement about UK government about Liverpool’s Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) lost £16 million in funding.
Here is McCartney’s statement:
“I helped to bring LIPA into life during very difficult times for Liverpool. It is now a highly respected institution all over the world.
Our funding was recently affected by what to me, and the heads of every university in Liverpool, was a flawed process.
LIPA is my passion and part of my legacy. It would not be fair to allow injustice to affect its future. I sincerely hope the Government will correct this error and help us to continue our work successfully into the future.”
An Office for Students spokesperson admitted the process but didn’t want to comment any further.
Here is what he said:
“The OfS is cooperating with the Ombudsman’s ongoing investigation into decisions made by HEFCE which pre-date the creation of the OfS.
This is a live investigation and it would not be appropriate to comment any further.”
