HC Deb 01 April 1981 vol 2 cc108-9W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will allow students to claim an extra week's social security payment in view of the fact that the summer recess has been shortened by one week because of the lateness of Easter.

Mrs. Chalker

Students are not excluded from benefit in the short vacations, but, in assessing claims, £19.20 a week is taken into account as a resource available from the student's maintenance grant.
