Michael attended the Kendray Winter Festival 2011 on Saturday 15 January. The festival was organised to celebrate the tremendous progress made in Kendray in terms of regeneration and community improvements in recent years.  This regeneration is thanks to the efforts of local residents and volunteers, in partnership with the local authority, and resources from the previous Government.

The Labour Party has forced the Government into a vote today on the proposal to scrap the Educational Maintenance Allowance (EMA), which many students from lower income households rely on.  

This latest proposal comes after the Government’s decision to axe 700 new schools and cut funding to Sure Start centres around the country. 

Michael will vote against the Tory-led Government’s policy to scrap EMA and has urged the Government to re-think its unfair and unprecedented attack on aspiration.  The EMA currently supports 640,000 learners across the UK and 80% of those receive the full £30 a week, meaning their household income is below £20,800.
