The blog article was a response to the report "The Referendum on Separation for Scotland: the impact on higher education, research and tuition fees" published by the House of Commons' Scottish Affairs Committee on the 16th March 2014. This report was produced following the session of the Committe on the 29th January 2014, in which Professor David Raffe was called as a witness to discuss the impact of independence on research, higher education, funding and tuition fees.
