§ Sir Hector Monro
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has decided on the level of fee remission grant which will be available to parents under the assisted places scheme in school session 1992–93.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
My right hon. Friend is making £9.6 million available for fee remission in 1992–93. Fifty-eight schools across Scotland will participate in the scheme. The funding now available should increase the number of pupils benefiting to the planned level of about 3,000 by the end of the session.
