It has for many years been a proud boast of the technical colleges and those responsible for them that they met whatever demand for further education presented itself. There may be overcrowding, there may be argument about which college should provide this or that course but come what may the demand would be met. It is astonishing that this open‐ended commitment should have continued for so long. But now, at last, it must come to an end because the country cannot, or will not, afford to meet the cost. Priorities will be decided and some students will be told: ‘We are sorry you cannot have the course you require.’ This must be done but it must not appear to be done. A rational determination of priorities must therefore give way to moves which deceive the eye.
