The hon. Gentleman will know of the considerable expansion of the universities which has already taken place in Scotland. I have, of course, taken a close interest in the development of academic opportunities for those in the highlands. I compliment all those involved in the extension of distance learning techniques and other activities to bring advantages to that area. At the moment, we do not see a case for a university of the highlands as such.
