HC Deb 23 July 1981 vol 9 cc236-7W
Mr. Jim Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the percentage reduction in the real income of United Kingdom universities in 1981–82 arising from the combination of (a) the reduction of Government grant to the University Grants Committee and (b) the reduction of fees income from overseas students as a result of the Government's insistence on higher levels of fees.

Dr. Boyson

I refer the hon. Member to the reply given by my right hon. and learned Friend to a question by the hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mr. Beith) on 14 July.
