HC Deb 09 April 1952 vol 498 c238W
85. Mr. Mulley

asked the Minister of Education what proportion of the item, Grants to Local Education Authorities in her Department's Estimates for 1952–53, it is anticipated will be spent on students' awards.

Miss Horsbrugh

I cannot give the figure asked for, but the hon. Member will see from the table on page 6 of the Memorandum on my Department's Estimates that I have assumed an increase of £2.7 million in the grant-earning expenditure of authorities on "Aid to Pupils" in 1952–53 and the bulk of this increase is attributable to increased expenditure on awards to students who have left school.
