Billy Elliot bursaries

Asked how much money each individual would get, the Prime Minister’s Spokesperson (PMS) told the assembled press that 40 interns would share 600,000 over two years.

Put that this was far below the minimum wage, the PMS said, it wasn’t directly comparable as this was a bursary scheme.

Asked if 7,500 per year was enough to support these individuals, the PMS said, anything that helps to encourage young talent was welcome.
