Axing maintenance grants hurts the poorest – Mulholland

by jamesbaker on 19 January, 2016

Commenting on today’s debate on the abolition of student maintenance grants on those coming from lower income families, Liberal Democrat MP Greg Mulholland said:

“The poorest students will be hit hardest by the ending of maintenance grants. Trying to do this through the backdoor shows not only their contempt for students but also their families. The Liberal Democrats utterly oppose this move.

“The abolition of grants will increase graduate loan repayments of the poorest. It will also increase the likelihood that graduates will not repay in full. It is unfair and economically illiterate.

“This hurts people the Tories talk about the most; whose who strive and go to University to better themselves.”
