97. Mr. H. D. Hughes
asked the Minister of Education in the case of teachers taking supplementary or third year courses, what income will be taken into account in assessing the students' contribution for fees and maintenance.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
I assume that my hon. Friend has in mind teachers who take up teaching work after their initial training and then later on wish to take a recognised supplementary or third year course. In all such cases, tuition is free, and the question of a contribution towards boarding costs is considered in relation to the teacher's income, if any, during the actual academic year in which he is taking the Course.
