§ 39. Mr. McENTEE
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that the London County Council contemplates the reduction of maintenance grants awarded to the Council's scholarship holders; and, in view of the fact that the Board have decided not to reduce grants for higher education, what steps he proposes to take in the matter?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Sir Donald Maclean)
I understand that the London County Council are considering the possibility of effecting economies in their expenditure on maintenance allowances, but that no decision has yet been reached by the Council on the subject. I am accordingly not in a position to say what action I may be likely to take in the matter.
