HC Deb 24 October 1986 vol 102 c1031W
Mr. Steen

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps Her Majesty's Government are taking to reduce the risk of acquired immune deficiency syndrome to students from countries known to be at high risk; if Her Majesty's Government have considered blood tests for those people on short stays in the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Newton

As my noble Friend has already said in the other place the present position is that visitors, or for that those returning to the United Kingdom, are not screened for AIDS and the Government have taken no decision to introduce such screening in the future.
