§ Mr. Grocott
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) what is the average cost of providing a three-year undergraduate course in social science (a) in a polytechnic and (b) in a university;
(2) what is the average cost of providing a three-year undergraduate course in law (a) in a polytechnic and (b) in a university.
§ Mr. Mulley
Detailed costings for courses in these subjects are not available. They form part of a larger group of courses not involving laboratory facilities for which the average annual recurrent institutional unit costs in the financial year 1974–75 are estimated at £1,560 for universities and £1,380 for polytechnics at 1975 survey prices.
