§ 44. Mr. Douglas
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will take steps to discuss with universities in Scotland the setting up of a Government-aided centre for drilling technology.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
The Petroleum Industry Training Board has been invited to take the lead in developing plans for the centre, in conjunction with the Department of Employment and the Education Departments. I should expect this further study to take full account of the suitability of Scottish universities and other institutions when considering where the centre should be located.
