HC Deb 14 June 1993 vol 226 c418W
Mr. David Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Education whether the level of student grants will be adjusted to reflect the forthcoming value added tax on energy.

Mr. Boswell

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply that I gave to the hon. Member for Lewisham, Deptford (Ms Ruddock) on 24 March at column603. The rates of student support for the academic year 1993–94 were announced last month, and those for 1994–95 will be announced next spring.
