Delay £9,000 fee cap implementation until higher Education Bill is properly debated & voted on, and full information available for 2012 applicants

Additional Information

On Dec7 at a close vote for a £9K fee cap The Higher Education White Paper was unwritten. It was unclear that: many bodies would set £9K fees; £9K fees are to be part reallocated as fee waiver to others; Scots &Welsh would opt out; & Students may have over £50K final debt with no £100K graduate gain for many. Government can't give current 2012 applicants details about early repayment, on how institutions use & spend fees, & until Sep2012 Key Information course by course. To bring in the new fee system there must be legislative change i.e. for early loan repayment penalties. Subject to parliamentary time a Higher Education Bill will be brought to Parliament in 2012. We propose Government does not implement the £9K fee cap until: 1.Parliamentary time is given for full debate & vote on The Higher Education Bill that changes the primary legislation & in light of new detail that this includes a second vote on a £9K fee cap. 2 £9K applicants get the information the Government says they need
