HC Deb 08 December 1971 vol 827 cc331-2W
Mr. Thomas Cox

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will increase the money made available by her Department to educational priority areas.

Mrs. Thatcher

Further support will be given through the urban programme to the four local authorities' projects initiated under the original action research programme in educational priority areas. The Social Science Research Council has also offered a grant, of which my Department will pay half, for some additional research in this field by Dr. A. H. Halsey.
