§ Mr. Christopher Price
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement about the level of fee to be paid in 1980–81 and in future years by overseas students in universities and other colleges of further and higher education in Northern Ireland.601W
§ Mr. Goodhart
[pursuant to his reply, 23 July 1980, c. 261]: There are proportionately fewer overseas students in Northern Ireland than in Great Britain. Their position is examined regularly in the context of the general review of tuition fees in higher and further education which lakes place every year and those attending courses at universities and other colleges of further and higher education will be charged the same tuition fees as home students in 1980–81.
