§ 73. Mr. LAWTHER
asked the Minister of Agriculture the basis upon which scholarships are granted to the sons and daughters of agricultural workmen and the test applied in the selection of the successful students?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Dr. Addison)
The scholars in question are selected by a Central Scholarships Committee on the qualifications, both general and educational, of eligible candidates as revealed, first by a careful examination of the information available concerning each candidate and then by interviews with a selected number. There is no examination test apart from the interview.
§ Mr. GRANVILLE
Will the right hon. Gentleman give full publicity to that statement in the rural areas of the country?
§ Dr. ADDISON
Yes. I have given the greatest possible publicity to it, but, if the hon. Member can suggest any useful way of making it more widely known, I shall be glad to consider it.
