HC Deb 01 December 1955 vol 546 cc241-2W
106 and 107. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Minister of Education (1) what financial asistance he contemplates providing for those students who will be taking the new diploma in technology; and, in particular, those coming from small firms and straight from school;

(2) to what extent he is making State scholarships and technical State scholarships available to those students reading for the new diploma in technology; and what will be the corresponding annual increase of these scholarships.

Mr. Vosper

Students at technical colleges taking courses approved for the new award will be eligible for the usual assistance from their local education authorities and for technical, but not ordinary, State scholarships. My right hon. Friend is considering whether the number of technical State scholarships should be increased.
