The Labour Party is reportedly planning to lower tuition fees by removing tax breaks on offer to pensions savers.
The Times reports that Labour is planning to drop the ceiling for tuition fees from £9,000 to £6,000.
However, to fund the move, shadow chancellor Ed Balls will reportedly target tax incentives offered to pension savers in order to raise the £2bn needed each year.
One of the options said to be being considered is a reduction in the £40,000 annual allowance, or a cut to the £1.25m lifetime allowance.
A Labour spokeswoman says: “Labour will set out our policy on tuition fees shortly.”
The reports come shortly after Labour promised to improve tax revenues with a new tax dodgers bill, while the Lib Dems have planned a new offence of aiding tax evasion.
