§ Mr. Proctor
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) if he will set out in the Official Report the number of students in each county in England and Wales who are currently enrolled on courses with the Open University;
(2) how many students in Scotland are currently enrolled on courses with the Open University.
§ Mr. Brooke
I understand from the Open University that figures are not readily available on a county basis. However, the provisional number of undergraduates, associates and postgraduate students (excluding those on short courses) enrolled in 1984 in each of these regions other than Northern Ireland is as follows:
Region Number London 9,686 South 7,555 South-West 5,372 West Midlands 6,209 East Midlands 4,778 East Anglia 7,725 Yorkshire 5,149 North-West 7,868 North 3,638 Wales 3,003 Scotland 7,043 South-East 6,188
