HC Deb 15 February 1951 vol 484 cc588-9
4. Mr. Ralph Morley

asked the Minister of Education what steps he proposes to take to give effect to the recommendations of the Report of the National Advisory Council on the Future Development of Higher Technological Education.

Mr. Tomlinson

I am not yet able to add anything to the reply which I gave on 25th January to the hon. Member for Devizes (Mr. Hollis).

Mr. Morley

Is my right hon. Friend disposed to regard favourably the recommendation that a Royal College of Technology should be instituted, with power to grant awards?

Mr. Tomlinson

I have undertaken to consider all representations that are made to me since the Report was printed, but I think it would be unfair to the House to say that I was favourably disposed towards the Report until I have seen the representations that are made.
