Meeting of the Parliament 20 March 2019 [Draft] : 20 March 2019


Iain Gray

Does the member acknowledge that the £4,100 for FE students is half of what the independent review said that they should have access to?



Meeting of the Parliament 20 March 2019 [Draft] : 20 March 2019


Iain Gray

Meeting of the Parliament 20 March 2019 [Draft] : 20 March 2019
