Progressive fees

I didn't quite see who the questioner was at PMQ's (Paul Uppal? according to my Twitter feed) but a graduate earning £25,000 would pay just £30 per month in repaying student fees under the Coalition's proposals. That really is extraordinarily progressive, putting enormous emphasis on higher earning graduates to repay the most substantial rates.

I had not realised just how progressive these measures were designed to be.
