Letter: High price of a university

degree

Sir: Since graduating, I have paid some hundreds of thousands of pounds in tax to the government. Perhaps I would not have been able to earn as much, or pay as much tax, without the benefit of a degree, and certainly I consider that I have repaid the cost of my university education several times over.

However, if this government is adopting a policy of charging us for the services we use, I look forward to a substantial rebate of the taxes I have paid towards education (I have no children), the armed services (pacifist) and the church (atheist).
