§ 40. Mr. JOHN
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether he is aware that the daughter of a ratepayer in Bath was awarded a scholarship of £40 a year for three or four years, as the case may be, in addition to a State scholarship, tenable at Westfield College, London, and that, at the end of her first year, the scholarship has been terminated by the Bath Borough Council; and what steps he proposes to take by increasing the State scholarship proportionately or otherwise?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Ramsbotham)
From such information as the Board possess, it would appear that the student in question is not a State scholar, but is being aided by grant under the Regulations for the Training of Teachers. These regulations prescribe the amount to be given, and the Board have no power to increase the amount in individual cases.
