Council to Debate Motion Asking Government to Reconsider Tuition Fees Increase

This doesn't happen often but I am absolutely behind something that NCC plans to do.

Cllr David Mellen, who is the portfolio holder for education, is to propose a motion at the next full council meeting on  13 December requesting that the government 'review and change' their policies to avoid 'leading to a wasted generation in Nottingham and the UK'.

Ok it's a bit wishy washy but it's a start. Would perhaps carry more weight if the motion called on the Leader of the Opposition to commit to reversing the cuts if Labour are elected next time and sent a message of support to the students currently occupying the University Great Hall.
