Petition to cut student loans to £3000.

Petition to cut student loans to £3000.

A petition calling for student tuition fees to be cut by nearly 70% to £3,000 has been debated in Parliament.

It argues the maximum annual fee of £9,250 in England will leave students in debt and put people off enrolling.

The online petition attracted 164,166 signatures, meaning it has to be considered for debate by MPs, one of who, Labour's Mike Hill, lead it.

Ministers have announced a review of student funding after it became a major issue in the general election.

Labour, which first introduced tuition fees in 1998 and increased them to £3,000 in 2006, are now committed to scrapping them.
