HC Deb 23 April 1956 vol 551 c119W
73. Dr. Mabon

asked the Minister of Education the average annual value of a local authority grant, awarded in the session 1954–55, to a full-time student enrolled at a university or other institute of higher education in England and Wales.

Mr. Vosper

The average annual value of awards given by local education authorities to university students in the session 1954–55 was £209. The corresponding figure for students at establishments of further education was £118. This second figure is not comparable with the first, because there is often no charge for tuition at institutions maintained by local education authorities.
