§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Minister of Education what study he has made of methods of giving financial help to school-leavers and university students to attend courses in Russian language, as proposed by the Annan Committee in paragraph 108 of its Report.
§ Sir E. Boyle
I am satisfied that no special arrangements are needed. Local education authorities have an obligation to provide financial assistance for any study regarded by a university as an integral part of an undergraduate course. They have a discretionary power to assist school leavers to attend pre-university courses.
