HC Deb 21 March 1957 vol 567 c62W
66. Mr. Russell

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education if he will give an estimate of the saving resulting from the application of a means test to winners of post-graduate research scholarships at universities.

Sir E. Boyle

The holders of State studentships for post-graduate awards in Arts subjects and of comparable awards from the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research will not be subject to a parental means test. I cannot estimate the sum involved in taking account of the student's own resources, but it is likely to be small.
