§ Mr. Pawsey
To ask the Secretary of State for Education what representations he has received about automatic membership of the National Union of Students.
§ Mr. Forman
During the course of the consultations initiated by the Government on student unions, my right hon. Friend has received a variety of representations on the membership of campus unions and the National Union 63W of Students. Students' membership of the NUS is indirect: it is a confederation of those campus unions which choose to affiliate.
