£50m - why not simply pay the fees?

Instead of elaborate and costly infrastructures, admin etc to run a student loan programme, why not simply go back to paying students' fees to allow them to go to uni for free? Invest in our young brains and let them start out their adult lives with the help and support of the society they will benefit and be part of (and be able to 'pay forward' their good fortune).
