HC Deb 26 October 1972 vol 843 c390W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will give, for the longest and most convenient stated period of time, the number of British born qualified students awaiting entrance into universities who have been refused admission due to lack of places; how long on average such applicants have to wait; and whether immigrants including the Ugandan Asians are being granted preference in obtaining admission into universities over British born applicants who have been waiting for several years.

Mr. van Straubenzee

University admissions are the responsibility of individual universities, and the information requested is not available in my Department.
