HC Deb 03 July 1924 vol 175 cc1476-7
19. Mr. NIXON

asked the President of the Board of Education if, seeing that the education grants for children of widows of ex-service men is at present based upon the policy of whether the father, had he lived, would have been in a position to provide such education as secondary or grammar school standard, he will make a change by suggesting to the special grants committee that in future they should base their decision on the principle of whether the child would benefit by such higher education?


I have been asked to reply. Perhaps I may be allowed to refer my hon. Friend to the answer on a similar point given to the hon. Member for Tottenham on the 26th ultimo, of which I am sending him a copy.
