HC Deb 15 February 1940 vol 357 cc971-2W
Dr. Summerskill

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what is the amount of the Government grant to voluntary teaching hospitals during the war?

Captain Crookshank

I assume that the hon. Member is referring to grants in aid of medical education. The Treasury grants to universities, including their medical schools and faculties, are made as block grants in aid of general university income on the recommendation of the University Grants Committee. The university authorities, in the exercise of their autonomous powers, naturally have regard to the needs of medical education in administering these grants.
