HC Deb 16 July 1964 vol 698 cc282-3W
53. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that there will now be five universities with a probable sixth sited in or near central Scotland, two of which will be devoted largely to technological studies, and, in view of these developments, if he will ensure that the pending new foundation will be located in Inverness so that the academic. social, and industrial progress of Scotland will be promoted on a national, and not regional, basis.

Mr. Noble

In considering the University Grants Committee's recommendation on the location of the new university, the Government are giving due weight to all the relevant factors.
