HC Deb 13 November 1973 vol 864 c80W
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.
