LDYS to join National Demonstration

LDYS has today confirmed plans for participation in the NUS National Demonstration in Cardiff on December 2nd. LDYS members from all over the country will be meeting under the bridge at the end of the Oval Basin in Cardiff Bay between 11am and 11.30am before joining NUS on its march.

The introduction of fees is still not guaranteed in Wales as The Higher Education Bill (2004) left the decision in Wales to the Welsh National Assembly. In March 2003, the Welsh National Assembly pledged that variable fees would not be introduced in Wales until at least 2007, if at all. It announced that the final decision would only be made after a review is carried out investigating all possible methods of funding. This review is due to be completed in early 2005.
LDYS NUS Spokesman Adam Teladia said ā€œIā€™m proud that LDYS members will be joining thousands of other students on December 2nd to protest against the introduction of top-up fees in Wales. Labour have made a huge mistake introducing them in England and preventing intelligent people attending university. I hope the same mistake will not be made in Wales.ā€
