HC Deb 01 July 1997 vol 297 cc102-3W
Dr. Gibson

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what plans he has to review the research assessment exercise in higher education establishments. [6139]

Dr. Howells

None. The research assessment exercise is a matter for the higher education funding bodies, which are currently reviewing the conduct and outcome of the 1996 exercise. I understand that they intend to consult on future options in the light of any relevant recommendations from the National Committee of Inquiry into Higher Education, which is expected to report shortly.
