§ Mr. Bryan Davies
To ask the Secretary of State for Education how many students in London she expects to be in receipt of the new rate of loan for those who could conveniently live at home in 1995–96.
§ Mr. Boswell
The new rate of loan will apply from the academic year 1995–96 to students studying in London and living away from home whose grant is limited to the "parental home" rate of grant because their local education authority judges that they could conveniently live at home. Information is not collected centrally about the number of students in respect of whom LEAs have exercised this discretion.
