HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 c140W
35. Mr. Hunt

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will revise the basis of grant for medical students on a clinical course to take into account the fact that such students have no opportunity to supplement their grants by means of vacation employment.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

Medical students already receive additional grant in recognition of the fact that their courses last 48 weeks instead of the usual 30. Any further review of student grants will depend on the economic situation.
