Highlights of the week ending 28 January

The week ended with Michelle Donelan’s Written Ministerial Statement announcing that the repayment thresholds and interest rate thresholds will remain at current levels for the financial year 2022-23. Of interest was the suggestion that the government will “shortly” set out further plans addressing the student finance recommendations made in the Augar Review. This is a change in tone from “in due course” and so we might yet see the response to Augar.
