Education (Student Support) (Amendment) Regulations 2015 — Motion to Regret — 25 Jan 2016 at 20:37
Moved by Lord Stevenson of Balmacara
That this House regrets that the Education (Student Support) (Amendment) Regulations 2015, which change the existing student support arrangements so that new students starting full-time courses after 1 September 2016 will no longer qualify for a means-tested maintenance grant, will result in a significant decrease in participation in higher education by those in low-income groups, older students, female students, and students from ethnic minorities (SI 2015/1951).
