HC Deb 10 December 1991 vol 200 c413W
16. Mr. Trimble

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many polytechnics have indicated a desire to adopt the title universities; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Alan Howarth

The polytechnics have welcomed our policy to allow flexibility over the university title. Those that wish to take advantage of this flexibility will shortly be invited to propose new titles to the Privy Council Office.
