§ Dr. A. Thompson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will make representations in support of the establishment of a new Scottish university.
§ Mr. Maclay
I understand that the University Grants Committee has asked the four Scottish universities and the Royal College of Science and Technology, Glasgow, for their proposals for expansion to meet future needs. I am keeping in touch with the Committee to see how far examination of these proposals and needs suggests that the establishment of a new university should be considered.
