59.

asked the Minister for Education the number of full-time students enrolled in Trinity College and each of the constituent colleges of the National University of Ireland in the academic year 1971-72; and the ratio of students to staff in each of these four institutions.

The information requested by the Deputy is not yet available.

Why? Because they have not registered yet?

The information is not available from any of the universities. It was completed only recently in Trinity College.

Has the Minister the figures for the previous year, or is it fair to ask him that?

I am sorry. I have not got that information.
