HC Deb 09 October 1945 vol 414 c20
42. Mr. Scott-Elliot

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that students who have been recommended by the appropriate university body to continue their studies with a view to taking an honours degree, have been refused per mission to do so and have been direct into industry; and whether, in view of the general easing of labour controls, he is prepared to amend his policy in this respect.

Mr. Isaacs

As I have explained to my hon. Friend in correspondence it has not always been possible to accept the recommendations of the university authorities in this matter, and I am not prepared to alter my policy in respect of students who left the universities in the summer of this year. Those who entered the universities in October, 1944, and subsequently, can however, take a full three-year course.
