§ 48. Mr. Boyden
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will list those local education authorities which are not acting in accordance with the terms of Circular 5/71 and which are imposing arbitrary restrictions as to age or educational qualifications when considering grant applications from adult students entering the long-term residential colleges.
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
The Department does not collect information about local education authorities' arrangements for grants to students at these colleges, or on other courses for which awards are discretionary.
