§ Mr. Eadie
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what was the annual cost of educating a university student in Scotland in 1969; what were the equivalent figures for the preceding five years; and how the cost compares with the United Kingdom average.
§ Mr. Fowler
I regret that this information is not available. This is because it is difficult to allocate expenditure between education and research for Scottish universities alone.
Such figures as are available are to be found in the annual "Returns from Universities and University Colleges" and in "Statistics of Education 1966 and 1967, Volume 6 'Universities'". The 1968 version of this latter volume is now being prepared.
