"From September 2016, the next Labour government will reduce tuition fees from £9,000 to £6,000."
In a speech in Leeds in February 2015, Ed Miliband promised that a Labour government would cut university tuition fees in England.
Mr Miliband promised that this commitment would not be negotiable in any post-election coalition deals, adding that there would be no retreat from the fee proposals: “I made you a promise on tuition fees. I will keep my promise.”
The Labour leader reaffirmed his pledge during the ITV Leaders’ Debate in April 2015: “We will also cut the tuition fee from £9,000 to £6,000, because I don’t want our young people drowning in debt when they leave uni.”
