HC Deb 12 July 1984 vol 63 cc639-40W
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 for disabled students receiving mandatory awards amounted to approximately £93,000. It is not possible to estimate accurately likely expenditure in 1983–84.
