HC Deb 01 February 1965 vol 705 cc228-9W
Mr. Fletcher-Cooke

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what decision he has made upon the application of the Blackburn College of Technology to him to be allowed to purchase an industrial-type computer.

Mr. Crosland

This application has been refused because the courses at present offered by the college would not justify the provision of a computer, and there are other colleges in the regions which have computers with capacity to spare.
