Commenting, Baroness (Sal) Brinton said:

"Part-time students make up almost half of all students. The Government's higher education policy means that for the first time since fees were introduced, they won't pay a penny up front.

"Without a doubt, this will encourage people who wouldn't otherwise have been able to afford it, to come back to education.

"But we can still go further. Today Liberal Democrats supported calls to ensure both part-time and full-time students are eligible to begin repayments at the same time.

"This will ensure part-time students are treated fairly, create a level playing field and promote wider participation in our universities."
