The Student Fees (Amounts) (England) Regulations 2004 — 19 Jul 2004 at 21:03

Chris Bryant MP, Rhondda did not vote.

The majority of MPs voted to raise the university tuition fee cap at £3,000 per year.

MPs passed Statutory Instrument 2004 No. 1932[1]. The text of the approved motion read:

The £3,000 "Higher Amount" is the maximum fee an institution can charge if it has a plan in place under section 33 of the 2004 Higher Education Act[2]. Such plans require institutions to set out how they are to promote awareness of financial and access arrangements for the course. Regulations may be introduced to require governing bodies to monitor their institutions' compliance with their plans.

The Statutory Instrument charged set the amount chargeable in the absence of an approved plan at £1,200 per year.
