§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is his estimate in the current year of the additional grants paid to students on account of their disabilities by education authorities.
§ Mr. Brooke
In the academic year 1982–83, the latest for which figures are available, additional grants for640W disabled students receiving mandatory awards amounted to approximately £93,000. It is not possible to estimate accurately likely expenditure in 1983–84.
