asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received in regard to the future of Mary Ward College, Nottingham; and if he will make a statement.

The Governors of the Mary Ward College and the Catholic Education Council agreed to my proposal that the Mary Ward College should cease to admit students to initial teacher training and the last were admitted in September 1974. I have had representations about this matter from hon. Members, from the National Union of Students and from individual students at the college. A particular matter of concern has been whether the remaining students should complete their course at Mary Ward or elsewhere. This and other matters related to the run down of teacher training in the college are shortly to be discussed by my Department with the interested parties.
