HC Deb 21 June 1979 vol 968 cc640-1W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what plans he has for developing school pupil and higher education and further education student exchanges with their counterparts in other countries.

Mr. Macfarlane

My right hon. and learned Friend's grant to the Central Bureau for Educational Visits and Exchanges amounts to about £1.5 million this year. This will enable the bureau to sustain all its established exchange schemes while developing others which are self-financing. I am writing to my hon. Friend with further information.
