§ Mr. Churchill
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the average cost of rented accommodation for university students studying in central London for whom in-college accommodation is not available.
Information on the rents paid by students is not collected in the form requested. However, a survey of student income and expenditure conducted by Research Services Ltd in the 1988–89 academic year contains some information about accommodation costs faced by students living in London. A copy of the survey report is in the Library.
