Effects of freezing student allowance parental income threshold
The request was successful.
From: Alex Harris
Dear Ministry of Education,
Today the government announced that it was freezing the parental income threshold for student allowances. I would like to request the following information under the Official Information Act 1982:
* any estimate of the effects of this on the number of future student allowance recipients over the next five years
* any estimate of the amount of money expected to be saved by this measure over the next five years
* the primary advice document (cabinet paper, briefing to the Minister etc) relating to the decision to freeze the parental income threshold.
I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the fyi.org.nz website.
