HC Deb 06 May 1971 vol 816 c1629
23. Mr. Douglas

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will seek to make an official visit to the Scottish Business School in 1971.

Mrs. Thatcher

I have no present plans to do so.

Mr. Douglas

Does the right hon. Lady accept our regret about that Answer? However, if she chooses to do so in the near future will she try, while preserving academic freedom, to persuade the three institutions involved in the Scottish Business School to come together and make one clear and distinct home for that institution?

Mrs. Thatcher

Before visiting the school and finding out the facts I do not think I could undertake to do anything which would import a conclusion.
