§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what financing was allocated by his Department for the purpose of the report of the Jarratt committee on university efficiency; and what is his response to the recommendations which were issued in the report.
§ Mr. Brooke
The total contribution of this Department to the cost of the work of the Committee appointed by the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals under the chairmanship of Sir Alex Jarratt and of the associated430W efficiency studies in individual universities is expected when all accounts have been paid to be about £350,000. The committee has produced recommendations which merit serious and early consideration by those to whom they are addressed. My right hon. Friend will be considering with the CVCP and the University Grants Committee how the report can best be pursued.
