asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has yet received the Report of the Royal Commission on University Education in Dundee; and whether he has any statement to make.
Yes. I have received the Report, which is being presented to Parliament today, and its recommendations are being considered. Legislation will be required before these can be implemented. There is no prospect of legislation in the present Session, but the Government fully realise the urgency of the matter.I have conveyed to Lord Tedder and the members of the Commission the warm thanks of Her Majesty's Government for the thoroughness and expedition with which they have carried out their inquiry.
