HC Deb 13 November 1969 vol 791 cc123-4W
22. Dr. Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why fees for foreign students at the Regent Street Polytechnic Hall of Residence have been nearly doubled to £11 10s. a week whilst those for British students remain the same at £6 10s. a week.

Mr. Fowler

This increase has been made by the I.L.E.A. in accordance with the advice my right hon. Friend gave local authorities last year, that they should charge students from outside England and Wales their full boarding costs.
