asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what, since the Houghton awards, is the estimated cost, excluding student maintenance and boarding costs, per student year of educating a student in higher and further education; and what were the costs, in current prices, for 1969–70 and 1974–75 of educating a student in universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

The information for 1969–70 is not available in the form requested; that for 1974–75 will not be available for some time yet. For higher and further education, excluding universities to which the recommendations of the Houghton Committee do not apply, the additional average annual cost per student implicit in those recommendations is estimated to be about £92.
