§ 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.
