§ 47. Mr. Parkin
asked the Minister of Agriculture to what extent there is delay in the payment of grants by his Department under the Further Education and Training Scheme.
§ Mr. T. Williams
There is no avoidable delay in payment. The amount of each award cannot, however, be assessed until the student has furnished particulars of his personal financial circumstances, and. payment for any term cannot be made until his certificate of attendance at the College is received by my Department. There are 1,037 students holding awards from my Department and all except 13 have received full payment for the current term.
