Who will pay for education costs?
IN RESPONSE to the article in The Press about family living (The cost of decent family living, July 11), I agree that a family of four should have an income of £36,800 a year.
I am a carer for my elderly neighbour with illnesses so I get £58 per week. My husband gets £24,000 a year.
I have a ten-year-old and a 16-year-old; my 16-year-old is doing a full-time course at college come September. I have received a letter stating tax credits for him stop on August 31.
We live six miles away from college, £3.70 per day bus fare, so who will have to feed him, clothe him, put top-up on his mobile each week, as the £20 child benefit I get for him only pays for his bus fare?
Mrs D Powell, Fossway, York.
