The Union of Students in Ireland is calling for Fianna Fáil to spell out what it plans to do for students if returned to power.

USI is rejecting claims from the main Government party that it has a record of delivering for students.

The Union wants increased student grants, better accommodation and medical cards for those in full time education.

President Richard Hammond says Fianna Fáil must tell students how it will implement it proposals.

"We are calling on Fianna Fáil, who today responded to our criticism by saying very little, to come out and tell us what they will do.

"Lets get the best deal for students who cant afford the cost of college. Lets do it for them."
