HC Deb 09 November 1982 vol 31 c111W
16. Mr. Allan Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will reverse the proposed cuts in teacher training places in Catholic colleges of education.

Sir Keith Joseph

No. However, compared with the provisional proposals of 6 August the final decisions which I announced yesterday offered an increased overall allocation to Roman Catholic colleges and included provision for the continuation of initial teacher training at Newman college, Birmingham.
