Southport Liberal Youth disappointed by rise in fees
Liberal Youth are deeply disappointed at the result of today’s vote on raising the tuition fee cap.
Commenting, North West Chair of Liberal Youth, Sarah Harding said:
“Liberal Youth and Liberal Democrat policy remains the abolition of fees. I am saddened that we have been unable to implement this, such is the nature of coalition politics. We must now see the white paper as soon as possible to help influence the new system under which loans shall be paid back.”
Despite this disappointment, Liberal Youth recognise the influence of Liberal Democrats in improving the proposals, and will continue to campaign on this front.
