HC Deb 10 December 1985 vol 88 c567W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether the additional £25 million which he has announced for increases in university grants takes into account the projected increase in student numbers.

Mr. Chris Patten

The grants for the universities announced by my right hon. Friend on 12 November, at columns 104–8, take into account the costs arising from the additional students entering universities under the engineering and technology programme.
