asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what public funds are paid to Ruskin College, Oxford, in the current academic year; and how this compares with the previous year.

My Department expects to make a deficit grant to Ruskin College amounting to some £340,000 on its recurrent expenditure in the current academic year, compared with £296,000 in 1978–9. We have also made capital grants of £22,000 this year and £10,000 last towards building improvements, and in both years paid between £38,000 and £39,000 in tuition fees to the college in respect of those students receiving State bursaries. The Department of Health and Social Security also makes a grant to the college in connection with students taking social studies courses.
