HC Deb 19 January 1967 vol 739 c100W
46. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether the proposal for a technological university in the county of Durham has been abandoned.

Mr. Anthony Crosland

When it is possible to contemplate the establishment of further new universities, the proposal for a new technological institution in the North-East will be most seriously considered. But I would not expect this to be possible in the years immediately ahead.
