§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what inquiries he has made to discover whether overseas students might apply for a considerable number of vacancies in teacher training colleges in Scotland, paying their own way; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. McElhone
The majority of overseas students at present in colleges of education attend the Scottish Centre for Education Overseas at Moray House. This centre is not directly affected by the proposals in my right hon. Friend's consultative paper of 17th January but any views about the provision of courses for overseas students will be considered during the consultations that have been initiated.
