HC Deb 16 December 1982 vol 34 c229W
Mr. Christopher Price

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will appoint a body to advise him on academic and financial planning of further and higher education in the Province.

Mr. Scott

The Government statement which was published with the final report of the Chilver review group said that decisions on future planning and co-ordination arrangements for higher education would be taken after the Northern Ireland Department of Education and the University Grants Committee had further considered their future relationship, and after the institutions concerned had been given an opportunity to comment. A consultative paper on possible future arrangements will be issued shortly.
