Natasha Wynarczyk, KCL Media and Engagement officer, met Catherine McKinnell, Labour MP for Newcastle North, this morning.
McKinnell told Wynarczyk that she would definitely vote against the fee rise and that she intends to speak during todays debate in the House of Commons, although around 60 other Labour MP’s are expected to try and do the same.
Wynarczyk mentioned the petition that KCL has been running, gathering signitures in opposition to the fees rise. McKinnell told Wynarczyk that she would mention the petition to others.
The petition can be found here.
