HC Deb 09 February 1984 vol 53 c690W
Mr. Jim Callaghan

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he is satisfied with the ability of higher and technical education curricula to meet the requirements of microprocessor technology.

Mr. Brooke

My right hon. Friend is concerned that higher and further education institutions should respond appropriately to the changing demands of microelectronic technology, and has accordingly launched a number of initiatives in this field. Translation of these into detailed curricula is a matter for the institutions and validating bodies concerned.
