HC Deb 22 June 1993 vol 227 c134W
Mr. Harry Greenway

To ask the Secretary of State for Education if he will seek information as to how many full-time students are on paid sabbaticals and at what cost; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Boswell

The Government's consultations on student union matters have covered the uses to which public funds may legitimately be put, including supporting the activities of sabbatical officers. My right hon. Friend is now finalising proposals for action.
