Mr. Peter Bottomley

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will make it his policy to charge university students in the nations of the United Kingdom by different means dependent on(a) their university location, (b) the place they have (i) lived in and (ii) studied at and (c) the place of their birth.

Mr. Wicks

The Secretary of State is responsible for the funding of Higher Education in England and Wales. Students currently pay fees of up to £1,025 depending on an assessment of their financial circumstances. These arrangements are fair, just and equitable.
