HC Deb 04 December 1981 vol 14 cc228-9W
Mr. Field

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will give a breakdown of Open University students according to social class for each of the last five years.

Mr. Waldegrave

This information is not available. However, details of the occupations of Open University students at the commencement of their studies are given in the "Digest of Statistics" published annually by the university, a copy of which is in the Library.
