Liberal Democrat
INCREASE: Green
I certainly support this. Lack of maintenance loans and, particularly in central London, excessive rents significantly affect students' standards of living.
REVERSE: Green
I believe in free university education without tuition fees, which would reduce student debt and help widen participation.
