Mr. Swayne

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will estimate the total amount that will be paid by students in tuition fees during 1998–99. [85888]

Dr. Reid

It is estimated that Scottish students undertaking full-time undergraduate courses in further and higher education institutions in the UK and EU students studying in Scotland will contribute £18 million to their tuition fees in 1998–99.

From 1 July 1999, this will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.
