§ Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many individuals have graduated from the main universities in the United Kingdom since 1932; and how many of these took first and second-class honours, respectively.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
The number of degrees obtained by internal students of university institutions in Great Britain during the academic years 1931–32 to 1938–39 and 1945–46 to 1951–52 was:
Honours Degrees … … 106,369 Ordinary Degrees … … 76,770 Total … … 183,139
I regret that figures for degrees obtained during the war, and separate figures for first and second-class honours, are not available.
