HC Deb 05 April 1967 vol 744 c221
16. Mr. Monro

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is taking to ensure there are sufficient university graduates in agriculture, qualifying each year in Scotland.

Mr. Millan

My right hon. Friend is satisfied that there is no shortage at present of students graduating in agriculture from Scottish universities, and he does not anticipate any shortage developing.

Mr. Monro

Does the hon. Gentleman realise that there is grave concern that Glasgow University may be forced to discontinue its agricultural course? Can he say definitely that this will not happen and that there will be no detriment to the future of the West of Scotland College?

Mr. Millan

I know that this proposal has caused concern. I do not think that it would be appropriate for me to comment on it at the moment as it is under discussion between the university and the U.G.C.
