Students to pay the price of recession

Just a quick one.

I'm appalled by this news that student loans and grants are to be frozen while tuition fees are set to rise a further two per cent.

In no way is this fair on the record number of students applying for university places this year. I completely understand that we are in a difficult financial situation and to that end, freezing student loans and grants may be a good idea. But you can't do that if you are going to raise tuition fees. You can't have one and not the other; it's both or neither.

Simple as.
