asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what recommendations for the financing arrangements for student unions in 1980–81 have been made by the University Grants Committee; and whether base lines for increases have been indicated.

Friend the Under-Secretary of State, that the recommended increase in student union subscriptions for 1980–81 should not exceed 14 per cent.; that is over those for the 1979–80 academic year.
