HC Deb 23 February 1966 vol 725 c111W
Mr. Howe

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what has been the increase in the number of university law faculties and in the number of students graduating at such university law faculties as a result of decisions taken during the last 10 years about the scale and pattern of universities, university expansion and university building programmes.

Mr. Prentice

In 1954–55 there were 18 universities in Great Britain offering degrees in law and in 1964–65 there were 20. During the same period the number of students graduating with honours degrees in law rose from 761 to 1,081. This includes both universities with separate faculties of law or jurisprudence and those which offer degrees in law in the faculties of Arts or Social Studies.
