HC Deb 02 July 1986 vol 100 c538W
Mr. Warren

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will state the amount of money in current sterling values paid by Her Majesty's Government and local education authorities per head of the student population to universities in the financial year 1979–80 and in the present financial year.

Mr. Walden

The sum of the University Grants Committee's recurrent, equipment and capital grants to universities and universities' receipts in fees for home students (nearly all of which are paid by local education authorities) per full-time home student was, at 1986–87 prices, £6,323 in 1979–80 and £6,234 in 1986–87.
