HC Deb 15 October 1991 vol 196 c146W
Mr. Wray

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what recent studies his Department has sponsored about average student expenses on(a) accommodation, (b) food, (c) transport, (d) clothes and (e) books; and what are the figures in 1991 moneys and as a percentage of their regular income.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

I regret that the information is not available in the form requested.

The Government commissioned Research Services Ltd. to undertake a study on a GB basis during session 1988–89. Its findings were published as "Student Income and Expenditure Survey 1988–89", a copy of which has been placed in the Library. The survey was not designed to provide separate information on Scottish students.
