HC Deb 11 November 1966 vol 735 cc379-80W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what initiatives he is taking to promote the training of regional planners at institutions of higher education.

Mr. MacColl

At the request of my right hon. Friend's predecessor, a review of the output of trained planners, including those required for regional planning, has been initiated under the auspices of the Department of Education and Science and the University Grants Committee. Four new post-graduate courses in regional or regional and urban planning have been started this autumn at Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and Nottingham universities.
