Student Grants

EDM number 294 in 2015-16, proposed by Jeremy Corbyn on 13/07/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Higher education, Incomes and poverty, Loans and Students.

That this House notes the increase in the participation of working class students in higher education since maintenance grants were reintroduced; condemns the proposal to cut grants as a direct attack on the poorest people accessing higher education in England; further notes that the transition from a subsidy to a loan will push the poorest into the highest level of debt; and urges the Government to halt these plans in favour of a system whereby students can access more generous grants in order to cover the rising costs of living.

This motion has been signed by a total of 65 MPs.
