Labour leader Ed Miliband to make 'radical offer' on tuition fees

Labour leader Ed Miliband has said he is seeking to make a "radical offer" on student tuition fees.

"Young people feel they have no control because they are going to get into mountains of debt if they go to university," he said, speaking on ITV's The Agenda.

"We do want a radical offer on tuition fees because the future of our young people - something totally absent from this Budget - is a massive issue that our country faces."

New estimates suggest that the cost to the public purse of unpaid student loans could eventually end up cancelling out the money raised by highly-controversial move to triple fees to a maximum of £9,000 in 2012.
