§ Mr. Hannam
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if the recent changes announced in funding disabled students' extra educational costs will apply to disabled students with central Government awards pursuing postgraduate degrees.
The rates of postgraduate awards made by the Department for 1990–91 will be announced in due course. My right hon. Friend expects to make appropriate provision for the disabled students' and other allowances, on lines broadly similar to that for mandatory undergraduate awards but allowing for any relevant differences in the postgraduate awards arrangements. 617W Other postgraduate award-making bodies determine the rates for their subjects within the resources available to them.
