‘Labour are betraying young people – they’ve already broken their promise on student debt’, says Jo Johnson

Universities minister Jo Johnson has criticised Labour’s plan to scrap tuition fees, saying:

‘The only winners from scrapping tuition fees would be wealthy graduates – not the disadvantaged pupils whose interests Labour claim to have at heart’.

‘Labour are betraying young people – they’ve already broken their promise on student debt, and now their tuition fee policy has been exposed as damaging for young people’.

These comments come after a report by the Centre for Policy Studies think tank said that Scotland’s policy of free tuition had led to fewer students from poor backgrounds attending university.

Mr. Johnson continued:

‘The reality is that under the Conservatives, there are more disadvantaged students going to university than ever before, and Jeremy Corbyn’s plans would put this at risk’.
