HC Deb 19 April 1988 vol 131 c399W
Mr. Galloway

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has had from the British Medical Association-Associate Members group on the subject of a student loan scheme; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

We have received a number of representations from two of the British Medical Association associate members' representatives, including one submitted by the hon. Member, together with a relatively small number of representations from individual medical students, both direct and from hon. Members. All representations received individual replies.

No conclusions have yet been reached on the future pattern of student support. We hope to publish Government proposals in the summer, when the student support review group has completed its work.
