HC Deb 10 June 1971 vol 818 cc350-1W
20. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what she now expects the aggregate cost of student grants to amount to in each of the next three years.

Mrs. Thatcher

Excluding fees and parental contributions, and based on the projections in Planning Paper No. 2, £110 million, £120 million and £135 million respectively. These figures relate to United Kingdom full-time students in Great Britain taking first degree or comparable courses, including teacher training courses.
