The government is pushing through a higher education bill aimed at defending free speech at universities and stopping the practice of no-platforming.

No-platforming is a form of boycott where speakers are denied a platform to espouse usually-controversial views. The practice has become more prevalent in recent years as the remit for no-platforming people has become wider.

We spoke to Toby Young, general secretary of the Free Speech Union, Jenny Sherrard from the UCU, and former Liverpool Guild of Students deputy president Dylan Thomson about the proposals.
