Students: Loans

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 30 June 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how much of the student loan book has been sold under the provisions of the Sale of Student Loans Act 2008. (282854)

The Government still intend to make sales from the student loan book, but it is clear that this should be done only at a time when we can get a good return for the taxpayer. For the time being, the market conditions do not allow this. However, we will actively look to identify opportunities for a sale that represents value for money as market conditions improve.
