§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) when he expects the Universities Funding Council to announce a decision on capital grants to veterinary schools;
(2) what representations he has received from veterinary schools for capital grants to develop the student facilities; and if he will discuss such grants with the Universities Funding Council.
§ Mr. Alan Howarth
The Universities Funding Council's capital allocations for 1991–92 were set out in circular letter 7/91, a copy of which is in the Library. My right hon. and learned Friend has not received any representations from veterinary schools on the allocations; nor would he expect to do so since, under the Education Reform Act 1988, it is for the UFC to determine the distribution of funding between individual institutions.
