HC Deb 19 June 1985 vol 81 c148W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will propose the creation of a Commonwealth higher education unit with his opposite numbers from Commonwealth countries when he next meets them.

Mr. Renton

A Commonwealth higher education unit was established in August 1984 by the Commonwealth Secretariat and it is likely that its work will be discussed by Commonwealth Education Ministers when they meet in Sofia on the eve of the UNESCO general conference this October.
