HL Deb 29 March 1982 vol 428 c1266WA
Lord Brockway

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will provide subsidies to enable Iranian students to finish their courses in higher education in this country in cases where the Iranian Government have withdrawn grants for political reasons.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health and Social Security (Lord Elton)

Academic institutions may, within the limits of resources available to them, waive fees in whole or in part to enable students in severe financial hardships to finish their courses. Her Majesty's Government have no plans to make special arrangements to support students from Iran.
