HC Deb 11 March 1969 vol 779 c276W
Mr. Dunnett

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what plans he has to assist the International House Association Trust to provide a hostel in London for postgraduate students.

Mr. Edward Short

Subject to the granting of planning permission, the Trust hopes to launch an appeal to provide residential accommodation for about 75 married and 75 single postgraduate students, most of whom would be from overseas. I am prepared to guarantee the cost of launching the appeal up to a limit of £5,000, and Parliament will be asked to vote the funds required in due course.
