§ Mr. Stainton
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will authorise an immediate increase in grants and allowances to students engaged on compulsory studies overseas to compensate for the fall in the exchange value of the £ sterling.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The rate of grant for such students will be increased by £40 as from 1st September next. In addition, my right hon. Friend will be examining this grant as part of the current triennial review.
