HC Deb 17 November 1960 vol 630 cc533-4
16. Mr. Boyden

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps he proposes to take to obtain information about the number and qualifications of students who wished to gain admission to a British university this autumn, but who failed to do so.

Sir E. Boyle

As my right hon. and learned Friend informed the hon. Member on 25th October, he is considering this matter to see whether further information can be given.

Mr. Boyden

Could not the hon. Gentleman quite easily and simply have asked the Minister of Education to circularise heads of schools and colleges to find out what the actual situation is? Surely, the subject is so important that it demands immediate attention?

Sir E. Boyle

As the hon. Gentleman has indicated, his Question is really a matter for my right hon. Friend the Minister of Education.
