Most parents with children under the age of 18 would not vote for an MP who broke a pledge against increasing university tuition fees, according to a new poll.
The findings were released ahead of a demonstration in London today to protest at the "shutting down" of opportunities for the next generation.
The survey, covering almost 500 parents, showed that more than three out of five would not vote for an MP who broke a pre-election pledge to vote against increasing tuition fees while almost half believed they should resign.
Up to 10,000 students will attend a demonstration in London today to call for investment in education and employment.
It will be the first national protest organised by the NUS since more than 50,000 people, including many lecturers, took part in a demonstration two years ago which was marred by violent clashes with police, leading to a number of arrests and injuries.
