Editorial comments: Available on CD-ROM only. MT also visited Bradford Technical College of which Bradford Telegraph and Argus, 28 April 1972, carries an account. MT commented: "I have been most impressed with everything I have seen at the college. I have not seen such a varied one as this. It is outstanding in every sense of the word". Students at the college attempted to present her with an "honorary degree of butchery in higher education and callousness towards children" but the document "was seized by a member of the official party". Later she had lunch at Bradford City Hall where she was met by a peaceful demonstration from REMAC, an organisation campaigning for the repeal of the Education (Milk) Act.
