Carwyn Jones 'not attracted' to means-testing tuition fee grants

First Minister Carwyn Jones has ruled out means-testing for university tuition fee grants in future, if Labour retains power in May's assembly election.

His comments follow criticism of the policy from the body representing Welsh universities and opposition parties.

Mr Jones told BBC Wales Today he was "not attracted to the idea" of "putting huge amounts of debt on other students".

A policy review by Prof Sir Ian Diamond is due to be finished in September.

Students from Wales currently only pay £3,810 towards their tuition fees, wherever they study in the UK.

The rest, up to £5,190 a year, is funded by the Welsh government.
