Papers relating to UGC funding issues concerning the College building programmes and non-recurrent grants. A Sub-Committee was set up in 1962 looking specifically at non-recurrent grants in preparation for the recommendations of the Robbins Report. The papers include correspondence between the College and the UGC in 1964 relating to funding issues affecting building programmes and the academic development of the College. This includes letters from Bowden to Sir John Wolfenden, Chairman of the UGC, stressing the importance of completing planned building works to meet their projected targets of academic development.
