§ 73. Mr. Nabarro
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the nature of the arrangements made by the British Council for Japanese to be received in Great Britain as students; the cost to the British taxpayer during 1950–51 of free passages to this country; the cost of tuition fees, grants for books and monthly living grants: and the total cost for the years 1950–51.
§ Mr. Ernest Davies
The British Council are offering five scholarships for Japan for the academic year 1951–52. These cover the cost of return sea passages, and 161W of one year's study at a university. Fees and maintenance grants of £25–£35 a month are included, and places are found for scholars at suitable universities or other institutions of learning. The scheme does not come into operation until the beginning of the academic year 1951–52 and the total cost for that year is £3,350.
