HC Deb 12 February 1965 vol 706 cc137-8W
Mr. Hogg

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science by what date he expects that a quarter of the population will be enjoying some form of higher education; what new plans he has for this purpose; and when an announcement will be made.

Mr. Crosland

This aim—for a quarter of the relevant age groups—will be fulfilled when our social priorities and our rate of economic growth permit. The Government are steadily unfolding their plans both for further educational expansion and faster economic growth.
