HC Deb 18 November 1997 vol 301 c156W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what factors he will take into account when deciding where to locate the HQ of the proposed University for Industry. [15515]

Dr. Howells

The University for Industry will not require a large physical presence as it will make full use of information and communications technologies and networks to deliver its information, brokerage and commissioning services and it will not itself deliver courses. It is too soon to determine that factors that will be taken into account in locating its administrative centre.
