§ Mr. Canavan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will raise the parental contribution threshold for the calculation of students' grants, to keep up with the rate of inflation over the last 10 years.
§ Mr. William Ross
Since 1965 the parental contribution threshold has been raised from £700 of residual parental income to £1,600—session 1974–75. The 177W contribution scale for session 1975–76 is at present being reviewed.
