§ Mr. Leighton
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he is satisfied that the recommendations of the National Advisory Board for Public Sector Higher Education in 1983 take account of the projected requirements of British industry.
§ Mr. Trippier
I welcome the approval that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Science has given to the recommendations of the National Advisory Body for Public Sector Higher Education to increase the provision in 1984–85 for engineering students by 15 per cent. technology students by 10 per cent. and mathematics/computing students by 47 per cent.
