General election 2017: Labour brings forward tuition fees pledge

Labour says it would bring forward its pledge to scrap tuition fees to include students starting university in England this autumn if it wins the election.

The party also says students part-way through their courses would not have to pay for the remaining years.

It said the cost was factored into the £9.5bn annual bill for scrapping fees.

The Tories said more poorer students than ever were going to university, and the Lib Dems said better-off students would gain most from ending fees.
