HC Deb 05 February 1970 vol 795 cc176-7W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will state from information available to him from international sources which countries in Europe operate a discriminatory system of charges for residence for students in higher education as between home and foreign students; and what is the relative level of charges in such cases.

Mr. Fowler

This information is not readily available, and in view of the differing financial arrangements, would be unlikely to produce reliable comparisons between different countries.
