HC Deb 19 February 1982 vol 18 c236W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what evidence he has of any increase in the practice of selling qualifications and degrees of a bogus or misleading character, and not based upon any course or any ascertained level of achievement; if he has studied a transcript of the BBC Radio 4 programme "Checkpoint" of 11 February in this connection; and if he will introduce legislation to make it an offence to issue such degrees or qualifications.

Mr. Waldegrave

I have studied a transcript of the programme to which the hon. Member refers and will write to him further.
