§ 79. Mr. Wainwright
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give the names of the universities in England and Wales which offer facilities for the training of nuclear engineers and reactor physicists; and if he will state the numbers of such students at each of those universities for the years 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, and 1960.
§ Sir E. Boyle
The universities in England and Wales which offer facilities for the training of nuclear engineers and reactor physicists are Birmingham, Durham, London, Manchester and Southampton. In the years in question an average of 90 students took Postgraduate courses and about 100 students chose nuclear engineering or reactor 135W physics as an option in their final year of their undergraduate course. I am sending the detailed figures to the hon. Member.
