§ 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.
