§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether, in view of the shortage of trained town planners in central and local government, he will recommend to local education authorities that they should treat sympathetically applications for grants for students who intend to undergo postgraduate training in town planning in universities.
§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
This is best left to the discretion of the local education authorities. The Social Science Research Council has this year taken over responsibility for awards for higher degree courses in town planning.
