'I never said we'd write off student debt' per BBC News

The BBC report

'Jeremy Corbyn: I never said we would write off student debt

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said that his party did not make a commitment to write off existing student debt during the general election campaign.

Mr Corbyn was responding to a question from the BBC's Andrew Marr about an interview he gave to music paper the NME before June's general election, in which he had said he was "looking at ways" to reduce the debt burden.

Mr Corbyn said that shadow chancellor John McDonnell is currently looking at the party's policy and will set out its plans at a point in the future.'

Maybe the BBC could publish what they said about Mr Corbyn's interview at the time... Did the BBC mislead the public in order to boost the student vote for Labour?
