To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many full-time students in higher education receive no maintenance grant from public funds.

[holding answer 20 November 1987]: In 1985–86, some 89,000 students in receipt of mandatory or full-value discretionary awards received fee payments, but no maintenance, because of high parental or other income. In 1983–84, some 20,000 students in full-time higher education were estimated to be receiving neither maintenance nor fees from public funds. More recent estimates are unavailable.
