HC Deb 09 July 1968 vol 768 c53W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress he has made on the plans for the new building for the engineering faculty of the City University; and when the starting date is likely to be.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

I understand that the University Grants Committee approved a grant of £2.39 million in July, 1966 for major extensions at this University, including approximately £1 million for engineering building, and work is now proceeding on these projects.

There is a provisional allocation of a further £1.4 million for the period 1970 to 1972, most of which is intended for major mechanical and civil engineering extensions.
