HC Deb 21 January 1965 vol 705 c106W
Mr. Merlyn Rees

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, how many postgraduate awards for bioengineering courses were made by the Medical Research Council in the years 1962–63 and 1963–64 respectively.

Mr. M. Stewart

The Council made one postgraduate award in 1962–63 for a bio-engineering course at the Imperial College of Science and Technology, London, and two similar awards for the same course in 1963–64. No applications from eligible candidates for this course, which is the only one of its kind in the United Kingdom at present, have been declined by the Council.
