§ Mr. Arnold
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many scholarships have been awarded 283W 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.
