§ 16 to 18-year olds (Maintenance Grants)
§ Mr. Macfarlane
My right hon. and learned Friend told the House on 18 June that savings of £10 million would be made in 1979–80 by not proceeding with the proposed pilot schemes. That first year would have covered two academic terms only. The cost in subsequent years would have been proportionately higher, some £15 million.
