Mr. Chataway

The most comprehensive and latest available information is contained in the bookletOverseas Students in Britain (October, 1962) and its statistical supplement Overseas Students in Britain 1962–1963 (October, 1963). These are published by the London Conference on Overseas Students, under the auspices of the British Council, to whom my own Department, other Government Departments and non-governmental bodies regularly supply statistical information. I am sending the hon. Member copies of these pamphlets.
