HC Deb 25 June 1997 vol 296 c561W
Mr. Chaytor

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what proposals she has to increase opportunities for appropriately qualified young people from developing countries to attend British universities. [5170]

Mr. Foulkes

In financial year 1995–96, the last year for which we have figures, we spent some £69.8 million on over 9,000 scholars and trainees who studied in the UK. I have no proposals to increase this expenditure at present but we welcome any suggestions from Members and others as part of the White Paper consultation.
