HC Deb 10 February 1960 vol 617 cc54-5W
Mr. Anthony Greenwood

asked the Minister of Education what are the space allowances for students and for staff in new buildings or extensions in universities and colleges of advanced technology, respectively.

Sir D. Eccles

The standards for colleges of advanced technology are related broadly to those recommended in my Department's Building Bulletin No. 5, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member. It is recognised, however, that owing to the special nature of their work these colleges will often require accommodation which in one respect or another is rather more generous than that recommended for technical colleges as a whole. I have asked my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer to let the hon. Member have particulars so far as the universities are concerned.
