HC Deb 11 March 1948 vol 448 c179W
95 and 96. Dr. S. Jeger

asked the Minister of Education (1) the number of medical students whose fees are paid wholly, and partly, from public funds;

(2) the number of medical students at present receiving maintenance grants from public funds.

Mr. Tomlinson

At present 2,540 grants for medical students from my Department are current. Of these, 2,509 provide for the payment of full fees and a maintenance grant, six for a maintenance grant only, three for full fees only, and 22 for part fees only. Local education authorities also give grants to medical students, but figures for these are not available.
