Committee announces evidence sessions on Student Loans and Student Recruitment

12 December 2013

The Business, Innovation and Skills Committee will be holding two evidence sessions looking into issues concerning student loans and student recruitment. The Committee will be scrutinising the Government’s recent announcement to sell-off a part of the student loan book—loans issued between 1990 and 1998, known as mortgage-style loans, the recent NAO Report on Student Loan Repayments (PDF 87 KB), and policies affecting student recruitment.

Because of the timeliness of this inquiry the Committee has not formally called for written evidence, but would be happy to receive any written submissions.
