O’Keeffe: University fees will not impact on low income families

“The Education Minister Batt O’Keeffe has said it is important that any third level fees are ‘family-proofed’. Mr O’Keeffe said the report looking at the possible re-introduction of fees is at an advanced stage and will be brought before Cabinet in April. Student unions are strongly opposed to the idea, and have held a number of high-profile protests to highlight their anger at the proposals. However, Mr O’Keeffe said any fees will be well thought through and will not include low income families.”
