§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations have been made to him by the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals or the University Grants Committee about reductions in grants to universities; whether the main complaint is about revenue or capital expenditure; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Boyson
No written representations have been received from either body, but my right hon. and learned Friend and I met the University Grants Committee on 21 June when reductions in university grants were discussed. We expect to meet the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals shortly.
