BBC News - Cable accepts unlimited tuition fees plan

Business Secretary Vince Cable has given the government's approval to a report calling for an unlimited rise in tuition fees in England's universities.

Mr Cable told the House of Commons he endorsed the "persuasive proposals" of Lord Browne's radical funding reforms.

A backbench rebellion by Lib Dem MPs has been threatened - but Mr Cable defended the plans as "fair and progressive".

Students have warned that raising fees would mean "crippling debts"



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
