HC Deb 16 June 1986 vol 99 c383W
Mr. Hancock

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, how many representations he has received in the past 10 days with regard to part-time courses at universities; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Walden

My right hon. Friend has received some two dozen representations about the allocation of funds in relation to part-time students at Birkbeck college. I understand that the University Grants Committee has agreed to review this aspect of its allocation arrangements in the light of points made when the committee visited London university on 11 June and of further information to be provided by Birkbeck college.
