That this House notes the importance of the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) scheme for disabled people in Higher Education and the beneficial effect it has on recipients' academic achievements; acknowledges that DSA is associated with improved degree qualifications that result in significantly increased earnings; condemns the Government's reform of DSA, including the introduction of a £200 levy on disabled students who are recommended a computer as part of the essential technology to allow them to study independently and successfully; and accepts that since the introduction of this student contribution, there has been a significant decrease in the number of students taking up the equipment that has been recommended for them despite an increase in the number of assessments.
