asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to increase the output of graduates in engineering and technology; and if he will make a statement.

[pursuant to his reply, 19 March 1985, c. 482–84]: Proposals from universities to participate in the engineering and technology programme have been considered by the University Grants Committee, which has in turn consulted members of the Information Technology Skills Agency. I have now received and accepted the committee's advice about the institutions which should participate in the first phase of the programme. The participating institutions, the relevant departments and the proposed student intakes, are as follows:
