    Can you clarify whether this is a change, or just enshrining the existing position in primary legislation? If the former, it needs costing.
    This bill, put simply, consolidates existing policy into legislation.

    There may be slight differences in regards to:
    • the application process for bursaries;
    • review process of subjects;
    • and, the timescale and mechanism of payment (i.e. instalments over 3 years and a slightly delayed element of the bursary in the form of a 'career enhancement grant' )

    However, none of the aforementioned slight differences should have additional costs.

    It's a good idea that could do with costing. I'd also like an adaptive clause so that we could make changes should the landscape change in the future - at the moment a tentative aye that could be made secure with a few tweaks

    Overall, this bill does not affect existing policy in regards to costings; it simply translates policy into protected legalisation.

    In regards to your request for an adaptive clause, I do not know explicitly what you mean - this bill makes extensive provisions for adaptions in the form of:
    • the actual subjects offered;
    • the amount of bursaries offered;
    • and, the value of bursaries offered;

    Ok. I'm opposed to consolidation without some kind of Henry VIII clause here because it is the kind of subject which will be blocked far more than it should.

    This bill, already, includes substantive accommodations for change (in regards to the subjects and amounts) by the Department for Education.

    i.e. the DofE may add or subtract subjects; may increase or decrease the value and/or amount of bursaries.

    Can you tell me then, what value you see in codification? I feel this should've been the content of the notes.
