HC Deb 30 June 1969 vol 786 c40W
Mr. Wright

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why the Government grant to the Fulbright Commission has been cut, in view of its contribution to Anglo-American scholarly exchanges.

Miss Jennie Lee

The 4 to 1 ratio of American and United Kingdom contributions to the Fulbright Commission's funds is governed by the terms of the inter-Governmental Agreement of May, 1965, presented to Parliament as Cmnd. 2697. The United Kingdom grant was, therefore, reduced in line with the American reduction notified to the Commission last autumn.
