Medical Students not happy with Labour’s broken promise

Whaleoil-Election Promises Spreadsheet: Education

The New Zealand Medical Students’ Association (NZMSA) and Te Oranga have made a joint submission to the Finance and Expenditure Committee regarding Budget 2018. NZMSA seeks to ensure provisions are afforded for in Budget 2018 to ensure the government meets its EFTS cap promises.

NZMSA and Te Oranga have reviewed the Budget Policy Statement, and are concerned there is no mention of the EFTS cap policy, or costings for its removal. NZMSA and Te Oranga has requested to send a representative to the select committee to provide feedback on the budget and hold the government accountable for the EFTS caps promises made in the election.

Oh dear, there is free money available for students wanting to take Women’s Studies courses that will lead nowhere but Labour has broken their promise to extend the amount of money New Zealand’s future doctors can borrow to help them complete full-time training that takes longer than 7 years.

If they weren’t so busy giving money away for free to any man and his dog with zero strings attached perhaps they would have enough left over to lend some to our future medical professionals.
