§ Mr. Malcolm MacPherson
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many vacant places there are in the universities and university colleges; and how these are distributed among the different institutions and the different faculties.
§ Mr. Simon
I have no information about vacant places in the current university session. The report of an Inquiry commissioned by the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals showed the following position in October, 1955:
ment on the agreement over payment of support costs by Germany, and its effect on his Budget figures.
§ Mr. Maudling
I can add nothing to the reply given on 16th April by my hon. and learned Friend the Financial Secretary.
