HC Deb 05 June 1991 vol 192 c237W
Mr. Anthony Coombs

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to lay before the House the new student loans regulations; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Alan Howarth

The Education (Student Loans) Regulations 1991 were laid today to come into force on 1 August. They are modelled closely on the current regulations. They employ the new loan rates announced on 22 May at columns 499–500 and include improvements introduced in the light of experience over the past year. The regulations will ensure that the scheme continues to operate efficiently and to the advantage of all borrowers.
