In a speech at the bright blue study center in central London on Saturday, Green urged the conservatives “change of power” to guide the educated young voters who supported the work on June 8
Responding to the questions later, it was said that the only way to cut tuition costs to match would be to raise taxes, but acknowledged that this could be a national conversation.
Asked about his message to the students who have supported the work and is angry at the debt, Green said: “I think this is clearly a huge problem. I think in the long run we have to prove that they are getting value for money .
“If we want to have 40% more people going to university and if we want these university courses are really useful, I think that’s where the strain is often taken in European universities. You look very teaching that there are in some universities European, it has conference rooms with 600 people and things like that – it’s not really a teaching and learning experience you get in this country. ”
And he added: “If you want to say that you want to reduce costs  when fewer people go to college or experience would be lower because the only other way to get extra money, however, you want the same number of people, The same kind of education would bring the workers through their taxes … it is quite possible that a national debate we should have. ”

And said conservatives now have to adapt to the political landscape has changed or risk doing “serious long-term damage” to their electoral prospects. Green said: “In the classic motto Daily Telegraph Times change, non-conservative values believe in free market, individual freedom, a state aid, but not all powerful, strong defense and our traditional institutions.
“But the conservative realists recognize the constant reform need to defend these values.” Ruling the battles of yesterday is a recipe for irrelevance, conservative reform is the route to the success of the party, and most importantly a prosperous country.
Green said the reason the Conservatives lost their majority in the June vote was because the party was 30 percentage points behind work against austerity in the 18-35 years.
But while acknowledging the need to fight against growing hostility to capitalism, Green said the conservatives would abide by their deficit reduction plan.
