HC Deb 09 November 1976 vol 919 c132W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will discuss with the Committee of Vice-Chancellors what steps could be taken to prevent the sale of bogus degrees.

Mr. Oakes

My right hon. Friend has already consulted the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals and other interested bodies about bogus degrees. While she deplores this traffic, she doubts whether she can usefully take any measures at this time.
