Nick Clegg's tuition fees apology 'will cut no ice in Hull' - Diana Johnson
A Hull MP has dismissed Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg's apology for supporting a rise in university tuition fees.
The Government trebled maximum fees to £9,000 in 2010.
Before the last general election, the Liberal Democrats pledged to oppose any increase.
But they supported the rise after joining the Government.

Mr Clegg has now apologised for breaking the pledge.
Diana Johnson, Labour MP for Hull North, said: "Nick Clegg's opportunist apology for Lib Dem broken promises on tuition fees will cut no ice in Hull.
"The pledge to freeze tuition fees was not just in the small print of the Lib Dem manifesto. It was Nick Clegg's flagship election promise."
