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.
