§ 84. Mr. Mulley
asked the Minister of Education the total number of students attending full-time courses at technical colleges in England and Wales in the present academic year; and how many are colonial and overseas students and British students not receiving State or local education authority grants, respectively.
§ Miss Horsbrugh
The latest statistics available are those for 1950–51 when there were some 39,800 full-time students in technical colleges. This number included some 800 colonial students, but I cannot say how many other students from overseas. It also included some 23,000 students not receiving State or local authority grants.
