HC Deb 02 July 1954 vol 529 c131W
Mr. Blackburn

asked the Minister of Education if she will publish a list of local education authorities which have not adopted the basic rates of grants for university students recommended in her Department's Administrative Memorandum No. 425 of June, 1952.

Miss Horsbrugh

There are now only five local education authorities—Hastings, Worcester, Cardiganshire, Flintshire, Merthyr Tydfil—that have not adopted, wholly or substantially, the basic rate of grants for university students set out in Administrative Memorandum No. 425. In the consideration of an authority's scheme of awards, there are, of course, other factors besides the basic rate of grant of which account has to be taken.
