HC Deb 28 January 1992 vol 202 c511W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether, under the Further and Higher Education Bill[Lords], the further education funding councils will be required to provide any educational provisions or facilities without charge to the student; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Eggar

There is no such requirement in the Further and Higher Education Bill but the Government have no intention of changing present practice whereby young people aged 16 to 18 attending full-time further education are not charged for the tuition they receive.
