HC Deb 27 March 1947 vol 435 cc217-8W
Mr. Sharp

asked the Minister of Labour what approximate proportion of the science places available at universities is reserved for nominees of the Service Departments.

Mr. Isaacs

I understand that approximately 20 per cent. of the vacancies in the engineering department of Cambridge University are available to serving regular officers of all three Services. The number of officers who attend other universities is comparatively small, and no vacancies are specially reserved for them.
