HC Deb 13 February 1981 vol 998 cc430-1W
Mr. Butcher

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will consider the advantages of Coventry as a potential site for a regional resources centre servicing the microelectronics education programme for the surrounding area; and if he will liaise with the Coventry district council and the Coventry chamber of commerce on the complementary facilities which they may offer in support of such a project.

Mr. Macfarlane

The identification of sites for the proposed network of information centres supported by the programme will be by agreement with all the local education authorities concerned. It is too soon to assess individual cases; but I shall take account of any information provided by the Coventry LEA and the Coventry chamber of commerce.
