My hon. Friend is making a really powerful speech. Does she agree that pensioner miners in areas such as mine in Durham should be getting an enhanced set of benefits from the scheme, rather than the Government creaming off this money? It is an absolute outrage.

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what discussions he has had with the Department for Education on ensuring the review of post-18 education does not lead to an overall reduction in university funding.
