Cable: 'No alternative' to tuition fee policy


Business Secretary Vince Cable has defended his backing for the coalition on university fees, despite the anger it has caused within his party.

On criticisms of Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg, he said he was "absolutely confident that his leadership will continue" into the next election.
