HC Deb 20 December 1979 vol 976 cc403-4W
Mr. Ernie Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give an assurance that Dundee college of education will not be closed during the lifetime of the present Parliament.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

In view of the continuing decline in the number of school pupils I cannot give an assurance, in respect of any particular college of education, that the question of closure may not have to be considered at some future date.
