Student maintenance grants

Hilary campaigning to save student maintenance grants

Many constituents have contacted me about student maintenance grants.

The Government is wholly wrong to be abolishing them. The grants are vital for students from low income backgrounds and it will be very damaging if they go.  We are fighting this as the Labour opposition as hard as we can, and I am appalled that the Government has used a statutory instrument – which minimises scrutiny – to push this through.
