Effects of student loan changes
The request was refused by Ministry of Education.
From: Alex Harris
Dear Ministry of Education,
Today the government announced that it was increasing the repayment rate for student loans ("Student loan repayments hiked, allowances restricted", Stuff, 3 May 2012). I would like to request the following information under the Official Information Act 1982:
* 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 this decision
I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the fyi.org.nz website.
