HC Deb 12 April 1976 vol 909 c385W
Mr. Wood

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science which authorities he consulted on the subject of fees to be charged to overseas students; and whether they included the Commonwealth Secretary-General.

Mr. Gerry Fowler

My Department consulted the local authority associations before the issue of Circular 14/75 recommending fee levels in 1976–77, and we also took into account the advice of the University Grants Committee and the views of the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals. We did not consult the Commonwealth Secretary-General.
