HC Deb 16 January 1986 vol 89 c646W
Mr. Hancock

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to extend mandatory educational grants to refugees in the United Kingdom who are not granted refugee status but given exceptional leave to remain in the United Kingdom because of the dangers they might encounter in their own country.

Mr. Walden

There is no intention to exempt those granted exceptional leave to remain from the requirement that all students, except those granted refugee status, must he resident in this country for three years in order to be eligible for a mandatory award.
