asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how much additional cost would be entailed in connection with the maintenance grants in Scotland to be given with the raising of the school age if no means test were to be applied?


On the basis of the reply given to the hon. Member for Dunfermline (Mr. Watson) on 21st instant the annual additional cost referred to would be in the neighbourhood of £300,000 in the first full year, rising to about £470,000 in 1934, after -which it will decline towards the former figure.
