HC Deb 30 May 1963 vol 678 cc184-5W
Mr. Maddan

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether Her Majesty's Government, as a member of the Council of Europe, will make a financial contribution towards the work being done by the College of Europe at Bruges in furthering understanding among the peoples of Europe.

Mr. Heath

Yes. Her Majesty's Government believe that the College of Europe at Bruges has an important part to play in promoting co-operation among European countries in the field of higher education. Subject to Parliamentary approval, it is accordingly proposed to make to the College an annual grant of £2,500 starting in the current financial year, and Parliament will be asked in due course to vote the amount by means of a Supplementary Estimate.
