HC Deb 22 March 1922 vol 152 c486W

asked the President of the Board of Education if his attention has been drawn to the letter that is being sent by the Leeds University authorities to all applicants seeking admission as King's scholars to the university in October, 1922, informing them that the Board of Education cannot sanction any further admissions of recognised students for next session; and, if so, the reason for the Board's action in this matter?


Yes, Sir. I understand that the Leeds University authorities have already promised admission for next October to a number of new applicants, which will be sufficient to bring the total accommodation of the university training department next year above the number which has been recognised by the Board for grant in previous years. On the information before me I do not see any sufficient reason for sanctioning any further expansion in the numbers of the university training department.
