HC Deb 18 November 1954 vol 533 cc563-4
50. Mr. Fenner Brockway

asked the Minister of Education what decision has been reached on the applications of the Buckinghamshire Education Committee to transfer the costs of the extension of the Slough College of Further Education to this year's financial programme.

Sir D. Eccles

I have not yet received any such application.

Mr. Brockway

In view of the encouragingly increased demand upon this college of further education, and the larger population which there is in the Slough area, will the right hon. Gentleman give very sympathetic consideration to the application when he receives it?

Sir D. Eccles

Yes, Sir. As soon as the authority is ready to start I see no reason why it should not do so.
