HC Deb 03 August 1962 vol 664 cc165-6W
Mr. Longden

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is now the policy of Her Majesty's Government with regard to the financing of the University Grants Committee up to the level which they consider necessary in order to provide for the university population envisaged by Her Majesty's Government.

Mr. Barber

Undertakings have already been given that salary scales will be reviewed next year; and that the university financial situation will be reviewed in two years' time in the light of the course of the university expansion, of prices, and the long-term econo- mic outlook. My right hon. Friend is also considering the submission by the University Grants Committee on erosion in the university capital programme which was invited by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary earlier this year.
