HC Deb 24 November 1972 vol 846 c501W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will investigate anomalies which exist in educational grants between one local education authority and another with a view to introducing legislation to compel local authorities to give prescribed grants to technical college students and postgraduate students.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

My Department has drawn the attention of local education authorities to the need to reduce variations in practice in the field of discretionary grants.
