HC Deb 26 November 1953 vol 521 cc79-80W
103. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Education if she has considered the proposal that universities should themselves make grants to students from funds provided for the University Grants Committee, particularly in view of the variation in grants to students now made by the different educational authorities.

Miss Horsbrugh

I do not think a sufficient case has been made out for such a change. So far as the rates of grant to students are concerned, I would point out that 134 out of 146 local education authorities have now adopted either wholly or substantially, the rates recommended by me.
