HC Deb 26 July 1977 vol 936 c132W
30. Mr.Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will make students following courses in the arts at colleges and schools approved by her Department eligible for mandatory grants.

Mr. Oakes

Mandatory awards are already available for students at approved establishments taking degree or comparable courses or Dip. HE. in arts subjects. Students on courses below that level must look to their local education authority for discretionary awards.
