asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on his meeting with the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals in Leicester at the end of September; and what representations were made to him during that meeting about his Green Paper on higher education.

I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the talk which my right hon. Friend gave at the meeting on 26 September and a copy has been placed in the Library. The vice-chancellors welcomed what my right hon. Friend said and then exchanged views and information with him and myself about the proposals in Cmnd. 9524 and other matters. We have a much better understanding of each other's concerns as a result.
