HC Deb 01 March 1962 vol 654 cc1508-9
6. Mr. Albu

asked the Minister of Education what discussions he has had with the committee of vice-chancellors of the universities about the inclusion of the colleges of advanced technology in the proposed clearing house for university admissions.

Sir D. Eccles

In the first instance, this is a matter for the Committee of Principals of Colleges of Advanced Technology.

Mr. Albu

Would not the Minister agree that the handicap here is not the principals of colleges of advanced technology but the vice-chancellors of the universities, and that it is highly desirable that the colleges of advanced technology should be included in any clearing house scheme for the various departments of the universities?

Sir D. Eccles

I understand that conversations are about to begin between the principals of the colleges of advanced technology and the Central Council for University Admissions, and I hope very much that they will be successful.
