HC Deb 29 November 1973 vol 865 c213W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science for what reasons the European Chair of Rehabilitation at Southampton University has not yet been filled; and if she will make a statement.

Mrs. Thatcher

The appointment is a matter for the University of Southampton. I understand, however, that because of the importance of the appointment the university has taken pains to explore the field both in this country and abroad; this has necessarily taken time. It expects to make an appointment within the next month.
