§ Mr. Sydney Irving
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the independent universities fall within the category of designated courses under paragraph 7 of the Award Regulations 1970.
§ Mr. Gerry Fowler
I have been asked to reply.
I assume that the Question refers to the University College of Buckingham, which is not a university. Under the current Awards Regulations, courses provided by such an institution do not, unless they are specially prescribed by my right hon. Friend, fall within the category of designated courses.
