HC Deb 22 November 1962 vol 667 cc149-50W
46. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation what measures he is taking, in the light of the Report of the Commonwealth Education Conference in Delhi, to improve introduction courses for overseas students.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I have been asked to reply.

Introduction courses for overseas students are provided here each autumn by the British Council. Special courses are held in London for Commonwealth scholars and bursars. The total of attendances has doubled within the last three years. The British Council also encourage institutions of higher education to arrange their own courses. The Council will do all it can in co-operation with the educational authorities to expand this work within the limits of manpower and funds available.
