The supply of professional development loans by retail banks is a matter for those banks.
Neither the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, my right hon. Friend Vince Cable, nor I have therefore discussed the matter with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, my right hon. Friend Mr Osborne.
