Question for Treasury

UIN 49678, tabled on 20 May 2020

Answered on

8 June 2020

Universities will be treated in the same way as any other issuer under the Covid Corporate Finance Facility (CCFF). This means that universities that are both investment grade and make a material contribution to the UK economy are able to participate in the facility. We expect all issuers to repay in full.
