"We are also pleased that these issues are to be discussed in Parliament and we will be working closely with MPs to ensure a full and wide ranging debate.”"
Willetts told BBC Newsnight: "Why not give universities that wish it the opportunity of holding the loans belonging to their own graduates? So suddenly there's a direct connection between the university and the graduate."
Jackson said the action plan "sets out clearly what we need from Government and what we, as an industry, will do inin order to help deliver for the UK and support growth in the next Parliament"
"This new data is the latest in a long line of signs that paint a profoundly worrying picture of widespread underinvestment in mental health services at a local level across England. We have seen reductions in NHS spending on mental health at a national level for three consecutive years now, as well as far-reaching cuts to local services that people rely on for mental health support. At the same time, demand for mental health services is increasing, as people struggle to cope with the impact of the recession, unemployment and changes to the welfare system. Mind is seeing the fall out of this every day and has seen a huge increase in calls to our infoline over the past couple of years, with a particular increase in calls about money worries and people expressing suicidal thoughts."
