HC Deb 06 April 1971 vol 815 c111W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will fix the overall student grant to a cost-of-living index as a protective against inflation.

Mrs. Thatcher

No. Rates of grant are regularly reviewed in the light of movements in the cost of living and other relevant factors. Any changes in the grant rates will depend on the resources available for education, and the competing claims on those resources.
