29. Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if, in view of the likely cost of compensation and redundancy payments to university staff, he will extend the time scale of the proposed cuts in university finances to allow for reductions through natural wastage and early retirement schemes.

Mr. Waldegrave

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, North-East (Mrs. Short) on 20 November—[Vol. 13, c.256]
