HC Deb 06 March 1969 vol 779 c142W
Mr. Pardoe

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what plans he has for ensuring that polytechnics are of equal standard to universities in the provision of library facilities.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

I recognise the importance of improving these and other facilities in polytechnics, and am ready, so far as resources permit, to consider sympathetically proposals put to me by the local education authorities concerned.
