§ Mr. Hogg
I understand that representations have been received from the Borough of Flint, Hay Urban District Council, Llandrindod Wells Urban District Council and Montgomeryshire Education Committee for the establishment of a new university in their respective localities; the Monmouthshire Federation of Trades and Labour Councils has proposed Builth Wells, whilst the Rural District Council of Builth has supported Mid-Wales. In addition, hon. Members and other individuals have written to support these representations.
§ Mr. Gower
Has my right hon. and learned Friend noted that the Civil Estimates, just published, reveal that Newcastle University alone will receive in grants something like three-quarters of the recurrent expenditure that the whole of Wales will receive and that Scotland, with less than twice the Welsh population, will receive nearly three times as much? Surely, this indicates that Wales is not getting a fair crack of the whip.
