+++exclusive+++ corrected version of teenage parent policy announcement
It has come to my attention that due to an administrative error, an early draft of part of the Prime Minister's speech today was circulated and has been reported. Luckily, I have a copy of the corrected version, which I reproduce below with the errors crossed out and the amendments shown in red.

Every family is different, and we believe in personalised public services which help support every parent and give every child the best start in life, rather than trying to grab the headlines with crude and ineffective 'one size fits all' policies which are expensive and unworkable. For example, many teenage parents stay at home with their parents, and others have benefited from 'Foyer' schemes which offer them extra help and support.
From now on
The Labour Party would like to apologise for this administrative error. It does not affect the announcements about a National Care Service to give better and more affordable care for elderly people, new jobs and internships, free childcare for a quarter of a million more parents, a more responsive police force, and improved service for cancer patients and people seeing their doctor, all of which are as explained by the Prime Minister today, and are excellent and exciting news.
