HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 c1924
39. Mr. Watkinson

asked the Minister of Education if he has any further statement to make on the future development of higher technological education.

Mr. Tomlinson

I have nothing to add to the answer which I gave on 25th January to the hon. Member for Devizes (Mr. Hollis):

Mr. Watkinson

Is the Minister not aware that higher technological education is a factor in the rearmament programme? Would it not be a good idea to press this matter a little more?

Mr. Tomlinson

Yes, but in the foreword to the report published about this question I promised to give consideration to the recommendations that were made, and also to the comments of people who were asked to make observations upon them.
