HC Deb 12 December 1963 vol 686 cc110-1W
57. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Education whether he has considered the letter on higher technological education for the North-East, sent by the hon. Member for Tyne-mouth; and what action he proposes to take thereupon.

Mr. Chataway

My right hon. Friend shares my hon. Friend's desire that technological education in the North-East should continue to be developed. The need for any further institutions of university status is a question on which the University Grants Committee will be advising the Government in due course.
