HC Deb 31 October 1957 vol 575 cc97-8W
111. Mr. M. Stewart

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has for relieving the financial difficulties of universities.

I would refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend's announcement on 14th March last of increased annual grants to the universities. In addition, the universities are receiving supplementary grants to cover the cost of recent salary increases.
