Plans being considered by the Labour party to cut English university tuition fees would create a £10-billion hole in education funding that would be “implausible” for any government to fill, 20 senior university leaders have warned. With a mounting opposition to reduce tuition fees by £3,000, Universities U.K. board said the fee cap “doesn’t help poorer students and risks the quality of education for all.”
