HC Deb 08 December 1955 vol 547 cc91-2W
84. Miss Bacon

asked the Minister of Education how many local education authorities regard acceptance by a university as qualification for a grant.

Sir D. Eccles

I ask local education authorities to select candidates for their university awards on a number of criteria, of which acceptance by a university is only one. I should not therefore expect local authorities to be guided by this criterion alone.
