Government anti-poverty adviser Alan Milburn is right: the Coalition did make “a very bad mistake” when it abolished the EMA grant for 16 and 17-year-olds who stay on at school. I am proud that we have reintroduced it in Tower Hamlets. Hopefully other councils, and a future Labour government, will follow our example.
