§ 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.
