HC Deb 15 May 1973 vol 856 c274W
26. Mr. Armstrong

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations she has received from local education authorities seeking a widening of the category of pupils eligible for maintenance allowances; and what reply she has sent.

Mrs. Thatcher

There have been a few representations in recent years, concerned with extending the range of eligibility for allowances to those of compulsory school age. These allowances were never intended for that purpose.
