HC Deb 02 April 1965 vol 709 c289W
Mr. Hamling

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) what steps he is taking to implement the proposals of the Summerson Committee on post-diploma courses in art education;

(2) whether he is satisfied that the proposed names of centres for post-diploma courses in art education will provide a reasonable geographical distribution; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Crosland

I accept in principle the proposals for developing post-diploma studies in art and design contained in the Third Report of the National Advisory Council on Art Education—the Coldstream Council—and I am asking the National Council for Diplomas in Art and Design—the Summerson Council—to take responsibility for designating suitable centres. The number of centres needed will be reviewed in the light of experience.
