Sir: It is claimed that the desired expansion in higher education cannot be met by the public purse and young people will have to pay pounds 1,000 per year towards their university tuition.

Universities are already in a dire financial situation and that pounds 1,000 is needed in addition to government funding. Tuition fees should represent an additional source of income to the university sector, rather than a redistribution of payment between society and the individual.
