Hierarchy and Recruitment in Technological Education

  • Lord Robbins


In assigning to me the function of addressing this assembly you have conferred a great honour, but at the same time you have imposed a hard task. And, looking beside me at my fellow fellows and reflecting on what you might have had from them, I am not sure that you are achieving an optimal allocation of resources. How much more interesting to have heard Lord Murray on the new duties of the University Grants Committee or Lord Robens on the future of the energy industries. Whereas Robbins on anything to do with Higher Education — surely, after fourteen volumes, the curve has long ago cut the X axis and is now negatively productive, if it was ever anything else.
