HC Deb 19 November 1959 vol 613 c1322
15. Mr. Mulley

asked the Minister of Education if, in view of the need to enrol as many students as possible in the teacher training colleges for 1960, he will authorise the payment of dependants' allowances to these students, where appropriate, for two- and three-year courses.

Sir D. Eccles

I am looking into this.

Mr. Mulley

Will the Minister endeavour to make a decision on this matter fairly quickly, as he will appreciate that in the next month the students will be applying for places for the coming year, and many students will be debarred from taking teacher training college places unless they can have some allowance for their dependants?

Sir D. Eccles

I am aware of the urgency.
