Motion text

That this House notes that, as a result of 2011 changes to the Government Student Loans Scheme, there are thousands of lawfully resident and British educated students who are no longer eligible for student loans; further notes that this is because such students do not have full citizenship; further notes that very often, because such students are legally resident, they do not realise there is a problem until they apply for student finance; believes that it is wrong for lawfully resident British students to be denied university education in this way; and calls on the Government to revise these student finance restrictions so that all lawfully resident persons are entitled to student finance.
