HC Deb 18 February 1964 vol 689 cc183-4W
Q13. Mr. W. Yates

asked the Prime Minister, taking into account the Report of the Robbins Committee and Her Majesty's Government's policy on ministerial responsibility for university science, and bearing in mind the responsibility of the Minister of Housing and Local Government for the master plan of Dawley New Town, which Minister will be responsible for answering Questions and for decisions on the New Town Scientific University of Dawley.

The Prime Minister

The location of new universities, including the possibility of one at Dawley, is a matter on which the University Grants Committee, in accordance with my recent statement, will advise the Secretary of State for Education and Science. Appropriate interdepartmental arrangements exist for ensuring that planning considerations, such as those referred to by my hon. Friend, are fully taken into account.
