HC Deb 04 March 1975 vol 887 c343W
7. Mr. Jobling

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many local authorities have cut polytechnics and further education colleges; and by how much.

Mr. Prentice

The information is not available. The rate support grant settlement for 1975–76 allows provision for the expected increase in numbers of students taking courses at polytechnics and other maintained colleges.
