78. Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to receive from the University Grants Committee its proposals for the reorganisation of the teaching of veterinary medicine; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Chris Patten

The University Grants Committee and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons have set up a joint working party to consider the organisation of the training of veterinary medicine in the light of the report of the Manpower Review of the Veterinary Profession in the United Kingdom, which was published in August; it is not expected to report for several months.
