Attention: News on Simon Hughes!

On Newsnight BBC, Simon Hughes publicly announced he will vote AGAINST the tuition fee proposal.

"I won't be able to support the Government on the fee level for a combination of reasons but particularly because for a constituency like mine [the level of fees] may have a significant disincentive effect on the sort of youngsters who will go to university," Simon Hughes told Newsnight.

"I have a duty to listen to my local party members and my supporters in my constituency and on this occasion they have asked me to rebel and vote against – and break the coalition agreement."
