HC Deb 20 February 1995 vol 255 cc76-7W
Mr. Colin Pickthall

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security, what plans he has to help students whose levels of student maintenance are lower than the minimum income support threshold.

Mr. Roger Evans

In general, it is the education maintenance system, not social security benefits, which is designed to provide for full-time students and we have no plans to change this.
