Gerry Griffiths Address supplied I FULLY L support your Y campaign to encourage people to give up smoking.
My only sister smoked cigarettes for much of her adult life. She developed lung cancer and died in pain well before her 60th birthday. Such an unnecessary tragedy.
Coun David Skinner, Westwood Ward Coventry City Council. I AM writing to express my disappointment at the government's decision to scrap the educational maintenance allowance (EMA) that further education students in the region receive.
This retrograde step will only act to discourage those from the poorest families from continuing full time education at a time when skills will be all the more necessary to succeed in the labour market.
Coun Kevin Young (Arbury) Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council.
