Alex Harris made this Official Information request to Ministry of Education

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.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris
