HC Deb 28 January 1960 vol 616 c58W
70. Dr. King

asked the Minister of Education how many local authorities have now adopted the scale of maintenance grants which his Department recommends for pupils staying on at school over the school-leaving age; how many have not adopted it; and how many have adopted the full proposals of the Weaver Working Party Report.

Sir D. Eccles

All but five local education authorities in England and Wales adopted the arrangements recommended by my Department in July, 1957. 23 authorities have subsequently adopted in full the proposals of the Working Party and 24 others have adopted more generous arrangements.
