asked the Minister of Education how many new awards to students in the current academic year have been made by her Department and local education authorities, respectively, for first, universities and university colleges, and, secondly, technical colleges.
The following is the number of new awards taken up in the academic year, 1951–52:
|—||At Universities and University Colleges||Full-time courses at Technical Colleges and other Establishments of Further Education|
|Further Education and Training Scheme||110||284|
|Awards by Local Education Authorities||10,285||6,487|
asked the Minister of Education if she will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT, a list of local education authorities whose new awards for 1951 per 10.000 aged 5–14 years estimated population are less than the England and Wales average, and also show their respective figures.
This information is given in the Appendix to Circular 247 of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
