asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list overseas students' fees for postgraduate courses in science and engineering departments in Scottish universities.

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many overseas students have been registered in each of the university colleges in Wales for each of the past five years for which figures are available.

No such provision is considered necessary for 1980–81 since the full-cost fee arrangements have been announced almost a year in advance and will apply only to students beginning courses in that year.
