HC Deb 30 May 1962 vol 660 cc138-9W
Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation what arrangements he is making to finance special training courses for overseas students at British universities.

Mr. Vesper

Finance is being made available for attendance at British universities for courses designed to meet special requirements, and for courses which use existing facilities afforded by universities but which meet overseas requirements notified to my Department. The number of persons attending such courses is at present about 1,250 in a year at an approximate yearly cost of £1,215,000.
