HC Deb 19 October 1972 vol 843 c107W
Mr. Edward Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many students are studying at Scottish universities in the current session; and what were the comparable figures three, six and 10 years previously.

Mr. van Straubenzee

The latest figure I have is for 1971–72 which is 37,200. Figures for 1962–63, 1966–67 and 1969–70 are 24,000, 29,800 and 32,500 respectively.
