§ 30. Mr. John E. B. Hill
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps she is taking to encourage the joint use of playing fields, sporting and social facilities, libraries, laboratories and other buildings by neighbouring institutions of higher education.
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
This is a matter for the competent authorities of the institutions concerned to decide in the light of varying local needs and circumstances. I believe that they are becoming increasingly aware of the potential advantages of sharing and it is the policy of my right hon. Friend to encourage this trend.
