HC Deb 19 January 1988 vol 125 cc615-6W
7. Mr. Kennedy

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received concerning the funding of Aberdeen university; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jackson

We have received many representations about the funding of Aberdeen university. The university is in discussion with the University Grants Committee about the careful planning needed for the transition to the funding levels indicated by the committee's more objective resource allocation model introduced in 1986–87.
