HC Deb 12 April 1984 vol 58 cc344-5W
Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make representations to the Government of Israel about the risk to the livelihood of British staff arising from the closure of Bir Zeit university.

Mr. Luce

Bir Zeit university was closed for a month on 2 April. We have no reason to believe that the livelihood of British staff will be affected and that their salaries will not continue to be paid during the period of closure.
