The pressure is also upon universities, and higher education has difficulty in making its case against other apparently more urgent priorities. Accepting that such factors have created the immediate 1975 situation, it must also be said that the history of the colleges of education provided them with little preparation for the scale and violence of the changes that they have undergone. Looking back over the last fifty or sixty years of teacher education one would see that until two or three years ago the pattern of teaching training that existed, and the institutions that served teacher training have remained relatively much the same over that period of years.

Even discussions at Elizabeth House began to get heated when the Church of England decided it did not really totally agree to amalgamations on a larger scale than anticipated. Someone very kindly sent me the minutes of the meeting at Elizabeth House - we can guarantee its accuracy - it was written by a civil servant~ The Church of England objected to the idea of having to amalgamate every single college and a Bishop got rather annoyed. Mr Harding found this view out of line with previous statements of policy, and disturbing.

In each case there was considerable opposition to the DES view - in one case, Coventry, opposed by the LEA; in the other, Brighton, supported by the senior civil servants in the LEA. These two cases illustrate the power of the civil service on the resources question; the role of the local authority and the lack of academic argument. In both cases the Department actually wanted a polytechnic-college merger. The results - a merger with the polytechnic in Brighton and a merger with the university in Coventry - were taken on resource allocations alone, not academic argument, and the only intervening factor was Mr Rendel Jones in Sussex and Mr Bob Aitken in Coventry, the two Chief Education Officers.
