§ 32. Mr. Douglas
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will make a statement on the progress of the Open University with regard to admission of 18-year-old students.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
I understand that the Open University has received nearly 800 applications from 18 to 21-year-old students for admission in 1974. The application period is now closed and the allocation of places is under consideration.
