asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what has been the response to the Overseas Development Administration's share-scholarship scheme introduced earlier in the current year.

168 bids have been received from 67 institutions for the 50 awards available in the academic year 1986–87. In view of this heartening response I have decided to double the number of awards to 100. I am very grateful to these institutions for their willingness to join with ODA in cost sharing arrangements.
