Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what her policy is on the provision of education facilities in the United Kingdom for talented young people from Third World countries. [143148]

Clare Short

Our educational priorities are universal primary education and support for key skills for the development of poorer countries including building local capacity for skills training. Our focus is the development of, and better access to, education and skill training facilities in developing countries. We support training in the UK when it helps take forward these priorities.
