HC Deb 10 February 1972 vol 830 cc401-2W
26. Mr. Fitch

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proposals she has to increase the grants to married women training to be teachers.

Mrs. Thatcher

Except in the case of a married woman student living at home with her husband who is himself not a student and who is able to work, student grants for married women training as teachers, are being increased by stages over the academic years 1971–72 to 1973–74. I have no proposals for further increases at present.
