asked Her Majesty's Government:
When it will publish its response to the Report of the Scottish Committee of the National Committee of Inquiry into Higher Education.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State Scottish Office (Lord Sewel)
The Minister of State with responsibility for Education at the Scottish Office has today placed in the Libraries of both Houses copies of Her Majesty's Government's response to the report of the Scottish (Garrick) Committee of the National (Dearing) Committee of Inquiry into Higher Education.
My honourable Friend the Minister of State and I would like to commend Sir Ron Garrick and his committee for their work in producing such a comprehensive report in a comparatively short time. Her Majesty's Government looks forward to working with the higher and further education sectors in implementing the agreed recommendations and the main Dearing report, to which it relates.
