John Denham MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, last night warned David Cameron’s massive hikes in tuition fees would make it harder for black students to go to Oxford:
“The Tory-led government’s plan to triple fees will make this situation worse, not better.
“The Government keeps making false promises on university access and social mobility. The Office of Fair Access cannot impose quotas on social access, determine individual university admissions policies or set fees levels, regardless of what Ministers claim they can do.
“With their plans for universities becoming yet another embarrassing shambles, David Cameron needs to get a grip.”
