V-cs help safeguard our vital statistics

Vice-chancellors are well represented on the newly appointed panel of National Statistics, an independent commission designed to safeguard the nation's statistics.

Sir Kenneth Calman, Durham University's vice-chancellor, and David Rhind, vice-chancellor and principal of City University, have been appointed alongside John Kingman, former Bristol University vice-chancellor and chairman of the commission.

Sir Kenneth said: "National Statistics will touch on many areas of life... so it has a great relevance to much of the work going on in universities."
