PMQs: Corbyn slams Cameron after stalemate on student maintenance grants

Source: The Guardian

Labour fails to gain traction over issue of a policy nowhere to be found in Tory manifesto (Guardian 2016)

The Guardian have stated within their article that:

”Corbyn never got a proper answer to his very reasonable question about why the Tory plan to abolish student maintenance grants never appeared in the party manifesto. But he did not press this point and failed to seriously unsettle Cameron, who used confident, broad-brush arguments and aspirational rhetoric to get the upper hand quite easily in a student finance exchange that may have left some listeners more baffled than enlightened.”

What’s your view of this?

Are the tories right to go against their manifesto and legislate this policy without mentioning to do so during the election? Are the Conservatives right to abolish the student maintenance loan? Will it effect university intake rates, and cause a potential rise in unemployment for 18-22 years olds, unable to afford university?
