Council pledge protest against EMA

THURROCK Council leader John Kent may have suffered disappointment when seeing his budget proposals rocked by a Tory amendment, but he drew some consolation in the last debate of the evening, when he proposed a motion resolving the Council to lobby the Secretary of State to reverse his decision to scrap the Education Maintenance Allowance.

Several Tories, including the Council’s youngster recruit and most recent schoolleaver, Cllr James Halden spoke against the motion, but it was passed with support from independent councillors.
