University Tuition Fees

EDM number 1262 in 2008-09, proposed by Bob Spink on 01/04/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Higher education.

That this House notes with concern that students coming into higher education post 2011 could face debts of up to £32,000; notes that 70 per cent. of English adults want a similar tuition fee system to Scotland where students do not pay fees; recognises the University and College Union's belief that expanding Treasury funding of higher education would help to deal with the economic crisis; and calls on the Government to review policy on higher education funding and fees.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
