HC Deb 04 February 1971 vol 810 c417W
45. Mr. John E. B. Hill

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she proposes to continue to contribute to the Czecholovak Student Scholarship Fund after the end of the current year.

Mr. van Straubenzee

Yes. Subject to Parliament's voting the necessary funds, my right hon. Friend proposes to make further grants to the Czechoslovak Student Scholarship Fund in the three financial years 1971 to 1974 towards the cost of maintenance grants to students for whom the fund undertook responsibility. With these further grants I expect the Government's total contribution to the fund to reach about £47,000.
