HC Deb 27 May 1970 vol 801 cc476-7W
Mr. Brooks

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether, in view of recent events, he will now invite the Vice-Chancellors Committee, the Association of University Teachers, and the National Union of Students, to discuss with him the possible introduction of legislation to safeguard academic freedom and free speech in universities.

Mr. Edward Short:

No. I do not consider this an appropriate subject for legislation.
