§ Sir William van Straubenzee
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether a contribution is to be made to the Edward Boyle memorial trust on behalf of the Government; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir Keith Joseph
The Edward Boyle memorial trust has been established under the patronage of HRH The Duchess of Kent, Chancellor of the University of Leeds, to honour the memory of the late Lord Boyle of Handsworth. The objects of the trust are the advancement of education, music and learning, fields in which Lord Boyle made his own distinguished contribution. I am glad to announce that, subject to the approval of Parliament, the Government intend to make a donation of £25,000 to the trust and hope that the public appeal will be widely supported. The trustees have agreed that the Government's donation will be devoted to the support of students attending educational establishments in the United Kingdom and of students from this country attending establishments abroad.
