Valerie raises DSA cuts at BIS questions

On Thursday 26 June 2014, Valerie asked a question in Topical Questions to the Secretary of State.

Valerie asked:

“Two-thirds of students on DSA are dyslexic, cuts to DSA affects both the students and the institution and penalises both. Could the Secretary of State think again about reversing these cuts?”

The Minister replied:

“We are consulting widely on these changes. The main change is that people should only be supported with extra services rather than, for example, as a present getting laptops indiscriminately. We are talking directly to the representative groups involved and students will not lost out by these changes.”
