§ 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.
