Mrs. Thatcher


36. Sir G. Nabarro

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps she is taking, by Queen's Award or otherwise, to improve and encourage facilities of technological and scientific studies at universities and similar institutions of learning in the United Kingdom.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

The Government's plans for the continuing expansion of higher education, including technological and scientific studies, are set out in the two White Papers issued in December, 1972—"Education—a Framework for Expansion" (Cmnd. 5174), and "Education in Scotland: a Statement of Policy" (Cmnd. 5175). My right hon. Friends would greatly welcome participation by institutions of higher education in the Queen's Award to Industry scheme.
