HC Deb 12 February 1980 vol 978 c549W
Mr. McElhone

asked the Lord Privy Seal what decisions have been taken with regard to education grants for Chilean refugees following his Department's recent discussions with the World University Service.

Mr. Neil Marten

Earlier undertakings to provide up to 100 awards in 1979–80 have been honoured; and, subject to parliamentary approval, we expect to provide funds to enable the existing award holders to complete their courses of study.
