BUCS fail to comment on N.U.S march

British Universities and College Sport (BUCS) have refused to comment to The Courier on November’s N.U.S demo.

A spokesperson for BUCS said in an email to The Courier:

“…we do not provide comment on this kind of activity. Therefore we will not be providing a statement or logo for your article and please do not use our logo in association with your story.”

“We are a membership organisation and as such we respond to the requirements of our members so, with regards to the impact on BUCS fixtures, if both institutions are in agreement fixtures can be played at alternative rearranged times. BUCS has communicated this stance to the NUS.”

This stance is in spite of the fact that with dwindling student numbers projected over the next few years, BUCS are set to see their membership fall.
