HC Deb 20 November 1979 vol 974 cc122-3W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what discussions he has had, and with whom, with regard to changing the present degree courses for engineers; and what changes are being considered.

Dr. Boyson

None, since the education and training of engineers has been under consideration by the committee of inquiry into the engineering profession—the Finniston committee. My right hon. and learned Friend will consider the question of consultations with outside interests when the committee's report is available.
