HC Deb 13 July 1961 vol 644 cc553-4
4. Mr. Boyden

asked the Minister of Education if, to assist the Robbins Committee, he has now called for evidence as to the number of grammar school boys and girls who desire admission to a university this year, and have the necessary qualifications, but have not yet secured admission; and if, when these facts are obtained, he will publish them immediately.

Sir D. Eccles

I understand that the Committee will itself be making inquiries on these matters with the co-operation of the statistical and other services of the Government. Publication of the facts it collects will be a matter for the Committee.
