Labour leadership hopeful Jeremy Corbyn last week announced a £10bn plan to scrap tuition fees paid for by a 7% rise in national insurance for those earning over £50,000 a year and a 2.5% higher corporation tax, or by slowing the pace at which the deficit is reduced. The Welsh Government has launched a review of the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW)
