asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what arrangements there are for the provision of information, accommodation and welcoming arrangements for Commonwealth students arriving in Britain for educational purposes.

Information, accommodation and other services are provided by the British Council for students on arrival in Britain from independent countries of the Commonwealth and from Colonial territories. Details are given on pages 6 to 8 of the Handbook Overseas Students in Britain, of which I am sending a copy to the hon. Member.The Council co-operates closely with educational authorities and voluntary organisations who make a valuable contribution to the welfare of Commonwealth students. Assistance is also given by Commonwealth High Commissions and Students Offices in London.
