§ Mr. Ernie Ross
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he intends to publish the Government's response to the report of the Scottish Committee of the National Committee of Inquiry into Higher Education. 
§ Mr. Wilson
I have today placed in the Libraries of both Houses copies of the Scottish Office response to the report of the Scottish (Garrick) Committee of the National (Dearing) Committee of Inquiry into Higher Education.
I would like to commend Sir Ron Garrick and his committee for their work in producing such a comprehensive report in a comparatively short time. The Government look forward to working with the higher and further education sectors in Scotland in implementing the agreed recommendations and those of the main Dearing Report to which it relates.
