David Willetts has warned that many A-level students will be prevented from going to university because of Labour’s higher education policies.
David, the Shadow Universities and Skills Secretary, congratulated everyone who received their A-level results today, saying, “Their success reflects an enormous amount of hardwork.”
And he stressed it was “tragic” that Labour have blocked the path to university for so many A-level students:
“The Government first reduced the number of university places, then offered only unfunded places and are now threatening to fine universities that over-recruit. They said they wanted half of all young people to go to university by 2010, but now they are blocking progress towards their own target.”
