§ 29. Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he is satisfied with the adaptation of higher and technical education curriculum to meet the requirements of microprocessor technology.
§ Mr. Macfarlane
Responsibility for the curriculum in higher and further education rests with individual institutions and validating and examining bodies such as the Council for National Academic Awards, the Technician Education Council and the City and Guilds of London Institute. They are well aware of the implications of microelectronic technology, and relevant curriculum developments are taking place on a wide scale.
