HC Deb 28 July 1959 vol 610 cc49-50W
87. Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what consideration has been given to the establishment of a university in British territory in the Mediterranean area designed to serve the needs of the Middle East.

Mr. J. Amery

Much careful thought has been given over some years to the establishment of such a university, but it has not yet proved possible to solve the many practical problems which this proposal presents. Meanwhile I hope and expect that there will continue to be a large number of students coming here from Middle East and Mediterranean countries.
