Three Lib Dems threaten to quit posts over fees
"Nick Clegg's attempts to hold his party together suffered another setback yesterday when three Liberal Democrats threatened to resign their government posts over plans to allow universities to charge £9,000 a year in tuition fees.
"Norman Baker, the Transport Minister, and two parliamentary private secretaries - Jenny Willott and Mike Crockart - may quit so that they oppose the fees rise in a crucial Commons vote on Thursday. They are among the Lib Dems who are agonising over how to vote because all its 57 MPs signed a pledge to oppose an increase in fees at this year's general election."
