asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the latest figure for full-time university staff, and the number estimated to be required in 1966–67.

Fourteen thousand one hundred in June, 1961, as against 11,410 at the beginning of the present Quinquennium in 1957. Staff required in 1966–67 will depend on a number of factors, such as the distribution of students between faculties which have widely differing staffing needs. Given the expansion which the Government wish to see and existing staff-student ratios, I would expect the number to be between 19,500 and 20,000.
