Letter: Farewell to the spirit of '68

From Mr Jonathan Youens

Sir: Your editorial this morning ("Let students pay - it's only fair", 24 November) is very pertinent but you miss one fundamental point. There is already a graduate tax. By improving employment prospects through further education, the earning potential of a graduate is increased and thus the Revenue benefits from increased tax payments for years to come without the need for an extra levy. If a graduate ends up taking a lower-paid job such as teaching or in the health services, then surely we are getting our money's worth.

Yours faithfully,

Jonathan Youens
