§ 149. Mr. David Martin
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what information he has on the number of science parks attached to universities and polytechnics today and in 1979.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
Only two universities, Cambridge and Heriot-Watt, had science parks in 1979. According to the definition used by the United Kingdom Science Parks Association, there are now 39 science parks in the United Kingdom. Of these, 33 are linked with universities or university colleges, and the others are linked to polytechnics, higher educational institutions, and centres of expertise.
