HC Deb 07 November 1980 vol 991 cc677-8W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will seek to raise with the United States Government the possibility of the United States of America asking the Iranian Government for some of the Shah's fortune held in the United States of America to be allocated towards paying some of the costs of the education of Iranian students now studying in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Hurd

It would be entirely inappropriate for Her Majesty's Government to seek to intervene with the United States in this way.
