HC Deb 17 May 1982 vol 24 c8W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he has any evidence that the Government of Argentina are taking any action to remove from the United Kingdom the 400 Argentine students on the penalty of stopping financial aid to them; and whether he will consider making some temporary arrangements to finance these students if they refuse to be sent home forcibly.

Mr. Waldegrave

My right hon. Friend has received no evidence that the Government of Argentina are seeking to remove Argentine students from the United Kingdom by stopping their financial payments and cannot say at this stage whether it will be necessary to consider any temporary arrangements to assist them.
