HC Deb 13 April 1976 vol 909 cc463-4W
Mr. Gow

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is his estimate of the number of foreign students at present attending English language schools in order to qualify for entry into colleges of higher education; what is the average fee per annum payable by such students and the total of such fees during the current financial year; what proposals he has for increasing these fees; and what the effect of any such increase will be on the number of students attending English language schools and the total fees received from them.

Mr. Gerry Fowler

My Department has no responsibility for English language schools outside the public sector; the information requested about numbers and fees in private institutions is not available.
