asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what information he has of the number of Iranian students studying in the United Kingdom who are currently suffering financial difficulties and failing to pay their fees.

I have no evidence that Iranian students in general are in severe financial difficulty and unable to pay their fees. Where individual students of any nationality are in such difficulty they should approach their institution and their own embassy or high commission.
