ACCLAIMED playwright Sir Tom Stoppard was in the Capital yesterday to add his voice to campaigns to protect the teaching of languages in Scotland.

Sir Tom presented a petition to the Scottish Parliament calling for the introduction of targeted funding for lesser-taught languages such as Russian, Czech and Polish at Scottish universities.

Members of the University and College Union are lobbying MSPs to ring-fence funding, arguing that the Scottish Funding Council must maintain a wide range of courses.
