asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what was the cost per student in 1975–76 at (a) Stranmillis, (b) St. Joseph's and (c) St. Mary's; and what is the cost per student expected to be in 1977–78 and 1978–79, having regard to the expected drop in intake of students.

The average costs per full-time student in 1975–76, excluding payments to students under their awards, were as follows:

Stranmillis College1,366
St. Joseph's College1,232
St. Mary's College1,139
The overall requirements for training places in 1977–78 and 1978–79 have not yet been determined and it is not therefore possible to make any estimate of the costs per student in those years.
