HC Deb 11 May 1976 vol 911 c151W
Mr. Wood

asked the Minister for Overseas Development at what stage he proposes to consult the Commonwealth Secretary-General, the Secretary-General of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the Chairman of the Commonwealth Technical Assistance Fund and others closely concerned, as part of the inter-departmental review on overseas students.

Mr. Judd

The future level of overseas students fees and related questions are currently under review by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Science. We are in close touch with him and with the other Ministers concerned with these issues. We are giving careful attention to all representations made to us, from whatever quarter. My Ministry's direct responsibilities are confined to students financed from the aid programme and we are always glad to discuss matters concerning them with the Commonwealth Secretariat and other organisations.
