asked the Minister of Overseas Development whether the balance of the capital grant still unused by the University College of Salisbury has been blocked; and whether the grant of £800,000 towards the construction of a teaching hospital at the University College will still be made available.

The balance of the college's capital grant is being held in suspense pending further consideration.The proposed teaching hospital is a separate institution under the Rhodesian Government and the action on this must follow the general decision to cease aid to Rhodesia.

asked the Minister of Overseas Development why grants were withdrawn from examiners proceeding to Rhodesia to examine students at the University College, Salisbury.

These grants were withheld as part of the general policy of withholding aid following the illegal declaration of independence and were resumed as soon as it was decided to consider the special case of recurrent aid to the University College.
