§ 10. Mr. Mulley
asked the Minister of Education when she restored the minimum figure of the parental income scale, below which figure no contribution is expected from the parents, to £500; if she will take steps to give wide publicity to this improvement; and if she will amend her recommendation to local education authorities accordingly.
§ Miss Horsbrugh
I regret that the figure of £500 was given in error in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Hendon, North (Mr. C. I. Orr-Ewing) on 12th November, 1953. The income scale still runs from £450–£2,200, as stated in my Administrative Memorandum No. 425 of June, 1952.
