§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what advice he has given to Welsh county councils following the recent House of Lords decision on the question of local authorities paying grants to overseas students who have been resident in the United Kingdom for three years or more.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
No advice has so far been issued. The full implications of the judgment are still being considered, but we hope to be able to give advice to local education authorities shortly.
