HC Deb 01 March 1955 vol 537 cc242-3W
Mr. Albu

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer by what means he intends to ensure that grants made to the universities, especially for higher technological education, are not balanced by equivalent reductions in expenditure for the same purpose out of the general grants made through the University Grants Committee.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The additional grants which I am making available to the universities for the expansion of higher technological education are for specific developments over and above those for which finance was already available. The universities and colleges concerned will be reporting to the University Grants Committee on the progress of these developments.
