Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make it his policy to look sympathetically at applications for work permits from Chinese students who are able to obtain employment towards the payment of their college fees and expenses; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Renton

We will look sympathetically at any applications from Chinese students who, because of the situation in China, seek permission to take employment to help with their expenses.
