Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, the Government are extremely grateful to all students who chose to opt in to a paid clinical placement in the National Health Service during this extremely difficult time. We have ensured that all students who do so are rewarded fairly for their hard work. The students will continue to be required to pay tuition fees and there are no plans for a specific scheme to reimburse tuition...

Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, like many, many others, I joined in the applause for nurses and all those working in the NHS, particularly at this difficult time, not least my aunt, who is a nurse and midwife of 25 years’ standing. As I say, we are extremely grateful to all those have chosen to opt in. They are paid and are entitled to an NHS pension contribution during this period. On nurses’ pay generally,...

Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, we certainly value those who work in the nursing profession, which is why, as I say, the starting salary has increased by over 12% since 2017. The money with which those working in nursing are rewarded is just one way in which the appreciation of the country is expressed, particularly at this time.

Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, the hours of those who have joined the workforce early to help with the crisis count towards the 4,600 hours that they have to complete as part of their training. While they have been working, they have remained under the care of their higher education provider. This is still part of their training, as well as being a valuable contribution to the NHS at this time. From September...

Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, while nurses were not included in the announcement made this week, I can only repeat that the starting salary for nurses has gone up by 12% since 2017.

Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, I do not know whether the specific question raised by the noble Baroness has been discussed, but I will find out and certainly write to let her know.

Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, I have answered the question about reimbursement, which was the one that began this session. On nursing numbers, I would make the point that the number of nurses in our National Health Service is now at a record high and has gone up by 12,000 in the last year alone.

Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The noble Baroness makes an important point. Part of the new maintenance grant, which comes in in September this year, is in addition to a further £3,000 that is available to help with childcare, other dependant costs and living costs of that sort.

Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, that is a good and important point, which I will of course discuss with the department. Some people need to study near to home for childcare and family reasons; others like having the opportunity to travel to another part of the UK and study there, for the benefits that that brings them.

Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My noble friend’s back-up question is just as good. The repayment of tuition fees begins only once people exceed a repayment threshold, which is currently £26,575, but I will certainly discuss the point that she makes more broadly with the department.

Healthcare Students: Tuition Fees - Question (23 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The noble Lord is absolutely right: nurses have brought a great deal of comfort not just to those who have received their support directly but to their families and the general public, who have been watching on. However, as I said, those who have chosen to join the NHS early during their studies have been paid for their service and are receiving pension contributions. We are extremely...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (22 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, given the large number of noble Lords down to speak in the debate, I gently remind them of the three-minute Back-Bench advisory speaking limit.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Education: Racial Discrimination (21 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Racism is abhorrent and we all have a part to play in combating it, in higher education and more widely. Universities have a responsibility to ensure they provide a safe and inclusive environment for all staff and students. The government expects institutions to take their responsibilities, including those under the Equality Act (2010), seriously and to have in place appropriate policies...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Universities: Finance (20 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The government understands that the COVID-19 outbreak poses significant financial challenges to the sector. In May 2020, the government announced a package of measures combining different ways to give further support to higher education providers at this time of financial pressure. We have stabilised admissions and are pulling forward an estimated £2.6 billion worth of forecast tuition fee...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Universities: Coronavirus (15 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Notwithstanding the disruption of the COVID-19 outbreak to the higher education sector, students deserve appropriate support and recognition for their hard work and dedication. Many universities and colleges have moved adeptly to develop new ways of delivering courses through online teaching and alternatives to their usual end-of-course exams. As higher education providers are autonomous...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Erasmus+ Programme (14 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The UK’s participation in the next Erasmus+ programme (2021–2027) is a matter for our ongoing negotiations with the EU. The government remains open to considering participation in elements of the next Erasmus+ programme, provided that the terms are in the UK’s interests. It would not be appropriate to pre-empt the outcome of those negotiations.

Higher Education (Fee Limits and Student Support) (England) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion ( 2 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, as befits the higher education sector that it concerns, this debate has been a diverse but uniformly intelligent one. I thank all noble Lords who have taken part. The noble Lord, Lord Bassam of Brighton, asked about consultation with institutions throughout the United Kingdom. I have very happy to confirm that my right honourable friend the Secretary of State and my honourable...

Higher Education (Fee Limits and Student Support) (England) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve ( 2 Gor 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, we have all seen the devastating impact of Covid-19 around the world. Recovering from this will take time and Her Majesty’s Government are already providing an unprecedented set of measures to support the people of this country along the way. One such beneficiary of the support is our world-renowned higher education sector. My right honourable friend the Secretary of State for...

Covid-19: Universities - Question (30 Meh 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, in May we announced a package of stabilisation measures to ensure that we continue to look after the best interests of students, as well as supporting our world-class higher education system. We are bringing forward £2.6 billion of forecast tuition fee payments to help universities manage cash flow and provide support to students, and £100 million to help protect vital university...

Covid-19: Universities - Question (30 Meh 2020)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The noble Baroness is absolutely right to point out the vital contribution that universities are making to solving the pandemic, which is putting pressures on them as well as on everybody else. She referred to the further package of support which the Government announced this weekend. In addition to bringing forward the tuition fee payments which I mentioned in my Answer, the Government are...
