§ 7. Mr. Boyden
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many applicants possessing the necessary qualifications for admission to a British university have not been accepted for a university place this autumn.
§ Mr. Boyden
In view of the serious nature of the problem, could not the information be obtained so that the situation may be kept under review?
§ Mr. Lloyd
It is difficult to obtain the information. For one thing, a number of students make applications to a number of universities. Secondly, the term "necessary qualifications" has different interpretations in different places. But I am prepared to look at the matter to see whether further information can be given.
