HC Deb 20 May 1974 vol 874 cc24-5W
Mr. George Rodgers

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make provision for total enrolment to the Open University to be extended; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gerry Fowler

The Open University has asked for its grant in aid to be increased to allow it to admit more students. My right hon. Friend is considering this request in the light of other educational priorities and in the context of Government expenditure generally.
