That this House is aware that many UK students in further education currently pay 50 per cent of their tuition fees, while the state pays the rest; is alarmed about the Government's latest intention that by the year 2013-14 anyone aged 24 years or over, who wants to study at education level 3 or above, will then have to pay the full cost of their tuition via a student loan rather than through any upfront fees; is therefore deeply concerned that the Student Loans Company (SLC) has little time and too few resources to develop an adequate system able to administer such changes, especially as there exists at the present time insufficient information, advice, guidance and formal structures relating to such changes; and calls on the Government to cancel the introduction of this approach until at least a proper assessment is made of the likely impact it would have on both the SLC and students who have little or no previous experience of loans.
