HC Deb 20 May 1965 vol 712 cc265-6W
55. Mr. Thorneycroft

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he takes to ensure that students arriving in this country restrict their activities to the studies that they have undertaken and return to their countries of origin upon the conclusion of those studies.

Sir F. Soskice

All students subject to the Aliens Order, 1953, or the Commonwealth Immigrants Act, 1962, are now admitted only for such a period as (with extensions) may be necessary to enable them to complete their studies. An application by a student to stay on in the United Kingdom after completing his studies will be granted only if he has an acceptable case on other grounds.
