HC Deb 06 July 1973 vol 859 c216W
Mr. Moyle

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will give an estimate of the cost to public funds of awards of mandatory grants to students in place of discretionary awards for the current academic year and the basis upon which the financial calculation is made.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Bearing in mind the many different kinds of discretionary award and the other variable factors, it is not possible to produce a reliable estimate on the information available.
