asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many students taking teacher training courses in physics, mathematics, craft, design or technology have responded to the financial inducement offered of £1,200 to students taking these courses.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
The bursary scheme for students entering one or two year initial training courses in mathematics, physics or craft, design and technology was launched this week. It is too early to assess the possible impact of the scheme on recruitment to the relevant training courses.
