2011 Education Bill – 9 November

November 6, 2011

The 2011 Education Bill continues its progress through parliament.

On Wednesday 9 November it will have its 3rd Reading in the House of Lords and is now only a short step from receiving parliamentary approval.

The significance here for higher education is that Section 8 of the Bill contains clauses enabling the government to set up to market rates of interest on student loans. 

Once the bill is passed the government will finally be able to set the interest rates and repayment thresholds on the proposed student loan scheme.
