HC Deb 31 May 1968 vol 765 c287W
Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, whether the proposed increases in the scale of students' grants will be fully offset by increased Exchequer grants to local authorities.

Mr. Edward Short

This is one of the increases in costs in 1968–69 which, as my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister announced in January, the Government expect local authorities to absorb by making savings elsewhere.
