asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many of the 31,671 students admitted to first degree courses in October, 1961, were full time; how many were part time; and what were the numbers of full-time and part-time students, respectively, who came from overseas.

All 31,671 were full time; the precise number of these from overseas is not yet known. No statistics in respect of admissions to part-time study are available, but in the academic year 1960–61 about 2,400 part-time students were studying for first degree and first diploma courses.
