HC Deb 07 December 1962 vol 668 cc233-4W
Mr. Lubbock

asked the Minister of Education what is the total amount per annum of deductions from State scholar- ships resulting from the application of the means test; and what is the cost of making the assessments.

Sir E. Boyle

The parental contributions in respect of State Scholars for the current academic year amount to approximately £927,000. An apportionment of the salaries of staff engaged on the assessment of these awards might be £15,000, but not all the work of assessment is concerned with the parental contribution.
