HC Deb 12 April 1945 vol 409 c2006W
Mrs. Keir

asked the Minister of Education whether the expression "financial resources" referred to in paragraph 8 of Circular 18 applies to family or individual resources.

Mr. Butler

In assessing the grant regard is had to the means of the applicant. He is also asked what contribution his parents or others are prepared to make, but their refusal to contribute does not affect the grant to the applicant. The private means of an applicant's wife or children are taken into account only for the purpose of deciding whether any addition should be made, in aid of their maintenance, to the grants payable to the applicant.
