HC Deb 27 March 1973 vol 853 c284W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress has been made regarding the reduction of variations in discretionary award grants for students.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

My right hon. Friend gave guidance to local education authorities about the administration of discretionary awards in Circular 5/71 of 5th April 1971. She is now considering whether further guidance would be helpful.
