HC Deb 25 July 1977 vol 936 c28W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when and where the National Council for Further Education in Scotland will be established; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. McElhone

My right hon. Friend is considering setting up a Council for Higher Education. There would, however, have to be consultation with the interests concerned before any final decision is taken, and he is not yet able to make a statement.
