Lib Dem minister considers resigning over tuition fees

Liberal Democrat transport minister Norman Baker has hinted he could resign from the government in order to vote against plans for tuition fee rises.

The party's MPs signed a pre-election pledge to oppose any increase, but policy has changed since the formation of a coalition with the Conservatives.

Interviewed on the BBC South-East's Politics Show, Mr Baker said he would make his decision after a meeting of the parliamentary party on Wednesday.
