§ Lord Blease
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the expenditure on maintenance, referred to in the Written Answer of 1st February 1982, includes allowances for travel between home and university, and if not what are the corresponding amounts involved including details for the academic year 1980–81.
The Earl of Gowrie
The amount for maintenance given in my earlier reply to the noble Lord included a grant for travel costs related to students' attendance at their institutions. The cost of travel between home and university cannot be extracted without disproportionate cost.
