Last quote by Jo Johnson

We will continue to look at the details of the student finance regime to ensure it remains fair and effective. But getting rid of fees does little to help young people: indeed, by reducing access to education, by damaging the viability of our universities, and by piling tens of billions on to the national debt, it does precisely the opposite.feedback

There is one institution on the south coast that has seen vice chancellor pay rise from £227,000 in 2009/10 to £350,000 to 2015/16, which is really quite a sharp increase.

This is hardly new terrain for parliament. The government made it clear as far back as June 2015's budget that maximum tuition fees would rise in line with inflation. And I set out changes to fees in detail for 2017/18 in a WMS [written ministerial statement] in July 2016.feedback

I want the ratcheting up of vice-chancellors' pay to come to an end. Universities need to show leadership. I want exceptional pay to be justified by exceptional performance. The party opposite wants to talk about process because its policy platform is disintegrating before our eyes.feedback
