HC Deb 10 February 1984 vol 53 c806W
Mr. Leighton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will make a statement comparing the academic assessment of each institution made by the national advisory body for public sector higher education.

Mr. Brooke

For the purposes of its 1984–85 planning exercise, the national advisory body for local authority higher education assessed each institution in the light of information and data received from a wide variety of sources and in accordance with a range of published criteria. It would be impractical to specify how this material was applied in detail in each case.
