HC Deb 14 December 1983 vol 50 c468W
Mr. Maxton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he proposes to introduce a flat rate system under which student grant award holders will be paid a common notional sum for travel without regard to their actual travel costs.

Mr. Allan Stewart

Consideration is being given to the possibility of a change in the arrangements for the reimbursement of students' travelling expenses, but no decision has yet been taken.
