Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she is aware that the Sussex University Union, being a recipient of public funds, decided at meetings attended by constitutional irregularities to subsidise, and pay the fines of, demonstrators supporting a strike; whether she will take these facts into account in her consideration of the financing of student unions; and whether she will make an interim statement.

Mrs. Thatcher

I am aware of the union's decision and will take it into account in considering the general question of the financing of student unions.
