HC Deb 17 February 1972 vol 831 c140W
32. Mr. Wilkinson

asked the Minister of State for Defence why it was decided to exclude Commonwealth students, and students from countries with which the United Kingdom is allied, from courses at the National Defence College.

Lord Balniel

The new National Defence College course is to fit mid-career officers of high ability for key posts in the direction of United Kingdom defence, and is inappropriate for overseas students.
