HC Deb 06 December 1979 vol 975 cc282-3W
Mr. Arnold

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many scholarships have been awarded under the Jubilee scholarship scheme for students on special high level engineering courses.

Mr. Macfarlane

62 national engineering scholarships were awarded in 1978 and a further 159 this year. They are no longer restricted to students taking special engineering courses at selected universities; from 1979 scholarships are tenable on any full-time degree course recognised by the Council of Engineering Institutions for exemption from its professional examinations.
