§ 72. Mr. EDE
asked the President of the Board of Education how many State scholarships were awarded to men and women, respectively, in 1930; how many of these awarded to each sex are to be held at Oxford and Cambridge, respectively; and in how many cases during 1930 was a scholarship declined on the ground of the insufficient means of the candidate to take it?
§ Sir C. TREVELYAN
185 State scholarships were awarded in 1930 to men and 115 to women. Of these 111 have been postponed, and I cannot yet say definitely at what University they will be taken up. Of the 189 already taken up, 28 are held by men and 11 by women at Oxford; 38 by men and seven 582 by women at Cambridge. So far as I am aware, no scholarship was declined in 1930 on the ground that the candidate had insufficient means to take it up.
