HC Deb 22 February 1968 vol 759 c164W
50. Mr. Edwin Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will state the names of the newly selected polytechnics, and the date when the list will be fully completed.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of Administrative Memorandum No. 8/67 which included a list of the proposed Polytechnics for which the L.E.A's concerned had been invited to submit detailed schemes. Most of these schemes have now been submitted for the approval of my right hon. Friend. As the House was told on 5th April, 1967, the 30 Polytechnics proposed would meet the foreseeable need while providing a reasonable geographical balance.—[Vol. 744; c. 151–5.]
