HC Deb 03 July 1985 vol 82 c147W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what subsidy his Department pays to choir schools; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dunn

The Department pays no subsidy to choir schools, though, as some of these schools participate in the assisted place scheme or the analogous scheme for music and ballet schools, parents of some pupils receive means-tested assistance with fees from the Department. There is no present prospect of either extending these schemes or introducing any separate scheme for choir schools as such.
