HC Deb 28 July 1953 vol 518 c131W
100. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is taking to stop the decrease in the number of full-time Scottish students recorded in the Returns for Universities, Command Paper No. 8847.

Mr. J. Stuart

In bursary Regulations which I made last week I have prescribed increased allowances for university students and have also increased the amounts of higher school bursaries. I am considering what further steps can be taken to induce pupils with the necessary ability to remain longer at school and qualify for university entrance.
