The House of Commons has approved legislation that permits universities in England to charge fees of £11,100 a year for accelerated degree courses.
MPs voted on the changes in the evening of 22 January, with Hansard, the official Westminster record, initially stating that they had approved the legislation by 301 votes to 223. For England-only members, the vote was reported as 269 in favour, 200 against.
However, deputy speaker Eleanor Laing later corrected the record. “I must inform the House that there was an error in calculating the number of votes of members for English constituencies,” she said.
