Hughes: I will work with every person of goodwill

Simon Hughes, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats, comments on his appointment as a government advisor on access to higher education:

"Parliament has settled the maximum university fee level in England from 2012 and we now have a critically important task to ensure that every potential student has access to all the facts about the costs, benefits and opportunities of further and higher education.

"I will work with every person of goodwill to ensure that from 2011 we have the best system of educational advice, information and support in place, designed to benefit all potential students and to ensure that disadvantaged young people increasingly gain access to further and higher education."
