asked the Minister of Education whether he proposes to include in his new Bill governing university awards similar statutory requirements on maintenance grants for poorer children remaining on at school after the age of 15.

There are differences between maintenance allowances to school children and awards to university students. Though the precise terms of the Bill have not yet been settled, I do not expect to propose any significant changes in the law affecting the payment of maintenance allowances.
