Building projects would be limited to those already under construction. Mr. McNie said the pause would pi'ovide the government and institutions with the oppor- tunity to study current enrol- ment trends "and to examine existing inventories of space with a view to more intensiv utilization, and generally to re- consider their plans for futur development."
