HC Deb 17 October 1975 vol 897 c842W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what easily available figures he has for the number of unfilled places in teacher training colleges, universities, and other institutions of higher education in Scotland, at a recent convenient date.

Mr. William Ross

In 1974–75 the estimated capacity of the teacher training colleges and of the central institutions, and other colleges providing wholly or mainly higher education in Scotland exceeded the numbers of students in attendance by about 600 and 2,500 respectively. I understand the corresponding figure for the Scottish universities is about 1,700.
