HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 cc47-8W
Mr. Bruce

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will allow students who become eligible for grant assistance after the start of an academic course to apply for a grant.

Mr. Allan Stewart

An exception to the normal rules requiring the establishment of eligibility for a grant under the students' allowances scheme by reference to a date at the beginning of a student's course is made for refugees and their families. I have no plans to extend that exception to other categories.
