HC Deb 14 June 1948 vol 452 cc10-1W
55. Mr. Philips Price

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that ex-Service men with matriculation standard are unable to enter for training in the faculties of veterinary science at the universites; and whether priorities will be arranged for this class of applicant.

Mr. T. Williams

Institutions offering degree courses in veterinary science have agreed to reserve not less than 80 per cent. of places for the academic year beginning in October, 1948, for people who served in the Armed Forces during the war or, in certain circumstances, in the mines or in agriculture; but the selection of candidates is of course entirely at their discretion.
