Plans to extend student loans to cover HGV licences not dead, claims APPG

A campaign pushing for the extension of student loans to cover would-be HGV drivers will continue, according to the chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Freight Transport. 

The comments came from Rob Flello MP, following news that the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills had rejected one of the key elements of the APPG’s draft skills report.  Productive discussions could begin now that the positions of the other political parties have been established, according to Mr Flello. 

The Freight Transport Association will also continue to support the campaign, which aims to make HGV licences more attainable through the extension of loans.
