HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 c326W
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.
