§ Mr. Christopher Price
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will reduce the passport fee for school students as a means of promoting educational visits and increasing contacts between young people in Europe.
§ Mr. Rowlands
No. Collective passports are already available to groups of between five and 50 students travelling in a party: one standard passport fee is charged. Also available is the British visitor's passport valid for one year of which the cost is half the standard passport fee.
