§ Sir S. Cripps
At the suggestion of the University Grants Committee a number of universities are instituting or expanding post-graduate courses of advanced instruction in technological subjects. These are intended mainly for graduates in technology who have already spent a few years in industry, and the subjects represented in the courses include the three main branches of engineering, metallurgy, mining and chemical engineering. Other courses are under consideration. To meet the cost of these courses additional recurrent grants have so far70W been promised of the following amounts: 1949–50, £15,500. 1950–51, £42,000. 1951–52, £57,000. These special arrangements are additional to the normal programmes of post-graduate study which are being carried on by universities with the aid of the quinquennial grants announced in 1947.
