Deputy Andrew Lewis has said the proposals for university grants will "not be enough for some families".
The statement comes after plans were announced today for the States to foot the bill for student tuition fees.
Deputy Lewis instigated an in-committee debate on Higher Education funding in October 2016 and welcomed today's proposals but still urged parents to demand for more.
Although this is an enormous step it will still not be enough for some families in the absence of an adequate student loan scheme to help fund the living and travel costs of students.
The proposal is now going to be put out to consultation so I would urge families that may still struggle to fund their children’s education to continue to lobby for an affordable loan scheme to supplement today's welcomed proposal from the Treasury Minister.
