Sir J. D. REES
asked the President of the Board of Education whether, under the scheme for providing gratuitous university education for demobilised officers, only such officers as had before the War commenced their university education, or had already entered their names at a university, are eligible for selection; and, if the answer be in the negative, whether the scheme is one to assist ex-service men to complete their interrupted education?
§ Mr. FISHER
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the scope of the scheme, I may refer the hon. Baronet to paragraphs 1 to 3 of the Grant Regulations, Statutory Rules and Orders, 1920, No. 161, Command Paper 548.
