§ 36. Mr. Weitzman
asked the Minister of Education whether, in respect of the awards for university students outlined in circular 104 of 16th May, 1946, she will state the income conditions and assessment of need under which awards will be made.
§ Mr. Hardman
No contribution is expected from a parent whose income does not exceed £600 a year. Parents with incomes above this figure will pay a contribution assessed on a graduated scale, which provides that an award will become honorary when the annual income exceeds £1,500. In arriving at the amount of income for this purpose allowances are made in respect of other dependent children and their educational expenses, dependent relatives, mortgage interest, and certain other liabilities.
