HC Deb 02 December 1982 vol 33 cc257-8W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether his Department will extend its provision of PERQ computers to other higher education institutions as well as universities.

Mr. Waldegrave

The Department has arranged for PERQ computers to be available for purchase by polytechnics on the same favourable terms as are available to universities. Additional expenditure in 1982–83 will be authorised on request, and will be poolable between all authorities in the normal way.
