THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.
British lawmakers on Thursday approved a controversial plan to triple university tuition fees by a narrow margin after some government legislators rebelled amid violent protests outside Parliament.
The plan to raise the cap on tuition fees to 9,000 pounds ($14,000) was approved, 323-302 in the House of Commons, a close vote given the government’s 84-seat majority.
The tuition vote posed a crucial test for governing Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition, and for the government’s austerity plans to reduce Britain’s budget deficit.
Outside Parliament, police with riot shields and batons tussled with angry student protesters, keeping them away from the building.
