Page 9, line 24, at end insert-

"( ) A condition under this section must require the governing body of the relevant institution to secure that, in respect of any qualifying course, the qualifying fees charged to a person do not exceed the basic amount if that person-

(a) had on or before 1st August 2005 received an offer of a place on a designated course or on a similar course which is no longer offered, in either case the first year of which begins before 1st September 2007, and whether conditional on obtaining specified qualifications or not; or (b) had received an offer of a place on a designated course the first year of which begins before 1st September 2006, and- (i) he was not able to take up the offer because a specified qualification or grade was not awarded to him, (ii) he appealed against the decision not to award the qualification or grade to him, (iii) the appeal was allowed after the last date when he could have taken up the offer, and (iv) as a result he was offered a place on the course for a year which begins on or after 1st September 2006 and before 1st September 2007. ( ) For the purposes of this section, a course is similar to a designated course, whether or not it is at the same institution, if- (a) it leads to a degree or other qualification which is the same as the degree or other qualification which the designated course leads to, and (b) the governing body of the institution at which the designated course would be studied is satisfied that the subject matter of the designated course is for the most part the same as the subject matter of the other course."

On Question, Whether the said amendment (No. 8) shall be agreed to?
