HC Deb 28 January 1954 vol 522 c257W
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.
