asked the Lord Privy Seal, whether the arrangements whereby students from French overseas territories are to be given EEC priority in the United Kingdom will be copied for students from British colonies including Hong Kong; what representations he has had about this from Hong Kong or other dependent territories; and whether he will make a statement.
On the first part of the question I refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to him today by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Education and Science. On the second part of the question, the Government have received representations on this subject from the Hong Kong Government but have not had representations from other dependent territories.
