§ Dr. A. Thompson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, in view of the findings of the survey conducted by Dr. Douglas M. McIntosh, Director of Education for Fife, he will institute an inquiry into the high rate of failure of first-year students at Scottish universities.
§ Sir E. Boyle
I have been asked to reply. The University Grants Committee has from time to time conducted inquiries into the success or failure of students at all the universities in Great Britain and I understand that it will shortly be examining the results of its most recent inquiry.
