§ Mr. TREVELYAN
The scheme for State scholarships, which has been revived this year, provides for the award of 200 scholarships annually to assist pupils from grant-aided secondary schools in England and Wales to proceed to the universities. The first scholarships under the revived scheme will be awarded to pupils who will proceed to the universities this autumn. Candidates from schools in Eng- 1501 land will be nominated for scholarships by the University examining bodies which conduct the approved second examinations for secondary schools, and candidates from schools in Wales will be nominated on the result of at special examination conducted for the purpose by the University of Wales. I do not contemplate at present any change in the method of award.
§ Sir HARRY BRITTAIN
Are any of these scholarships devoted to taking students to the universities from places in the British Empire outside these islands, or to travelling scholarships?
