HC Deb 06 July 1961 vol 643 cc1641-2
29. Mrs. White

asked the Minister of Education when he hopes to announce proposals for higher education in business and commercial subjects.

Mr. K. Thompson

My right hon. Friend hopes to make an announcement later this month.

Mrs. White

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that his right hon. Friend's un- lamented predecessor said on 9th February, 1959, that he hoped shortly to be able to announce the decision of Her Majesty's Government? Is it not about time that the Government got a move on in the matter?

Mr. Thompson

The hon. Lady must be fortified by the undertaking I have just given.
