80. Mr. Woodburn

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will now announce his plans for extending university accommodation in London; and whether he is prepared to divert additional university facilities to less congested areas.

Sir E. Boyle

As I informed the House on 10th November, no decision has yet been taken on whether there is a need for further new university institutions, but the University Grants Committee, who advise my right hon. and learned Friend on these matters, would be ready to consider applications from localities in Scotland.
