Tuition Fees

Asked whether the Prime Minister expects all his Ministers to vote for a change in tuition fees, the PMS said that it is Government policy and the usual approach is that Government Minister’s support Government policies. PMS added that Ministers are bound by collective responsibility. However we were in a coalition government and there were some issues outlined in the coalition document where the two parties agreed to differ.

Asked whether this extended to abstentions in line with the coalition agreement, the PMS said that there is provision in the coalition agreement on this and a number of other issues but it is worth noting that there has been a process following the receipt of Lord Browne’s report where the coalition has been working together in order to come to the right measures.

Asked whether the Prime Minister believed that the policy that will be set out is a good one, the PMS replied that clearly this is the case.
