Shabana Mahmood MP, Labour's Shadow Minister for Higher Education, commenting on the Higher Education Policy Institute report into university funding today, said:
"Today's report underlines the chaos, confusion and incompetence at the heart of the Tory-led Government's policy to treble tuition fees to £9,000.
"Ministers’ justification that fees had to rise has now completely unravelled as experts such as the Higher Education Policy Institute have shown that the new system will cost taxpayers more now and in the future.

"This shambolic and out of touch policy has now been exposed as both costly and damaging, and today’s report further calls in to question Ministers’ credibility."
