British MPs Defy Protests; Back Fees Rise

British lawmakers put their weight behind government plans to increase university tuition fees to a maximum of £9,000 a year in the UK.

The motion was passed with a narrow majority of 21 MPs after an impassioned five-hour debate.

Despite a revolt by several Liberal Democrat and Tory lawmakers, 323 voted for and 302 against the motion.

The parliament voted to increase the annual fees, from the current level of 3,290 pounds to a maximum of 9,000 pounds.'
