HC Deb 09 November 1987 vol 122 c4W
Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will publish a table showing the income per student received from the University Grants Council by each university in the United Kingdom and from the National Advisory Body for each polytechnic in England and Wales in 1987–88 and how he expects these figures to change in the light of the Chancellor of the Exchequer's Autumn Statement of 3 November 1987.

Mr. Jackson

Student enrolments for the academic year 1987–88 are not yet known. The funding increases announced in the Chancellor of the Exchequer's Autumn Statement amount to 8 per cent. between the financial years 1987–88 and for 1988–89 for recurrent funding of the universities and 9 per cent. for polytechnics and colleges under local authority control.
