HC Deb 08 May 1978 vol 949 c391W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in view of the fact that he has asked for and has received many representations from interested bodies on the creation of a council for tertiary education and the closing dates has been passed about one month ago, if he will make a statement on when he will come forward with firm proposals on the creation and powers of a council of tertiary education in Scotland.

Mr. McElhone

My right hon. Friend is considering the comments received in response to the consultative paper issued in January, and hopes to be in a position to make an announcement soon.
