Chevening Scholarships Programme

Volume 476: debated on Monday 2 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many people from each country received Chevening scholarships in each of the last five years. (207537)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for West Chelmsford (Mr. Burns) on 16 October 2007, Official Report, columns 996-99W. Details for the academic year 2003-04 are given in the Chevening Programme annual report for that year, which is also available at:

http://www.chevening.com/about/reports/.

A copy will also be placed in the Library of the House.

Details for the academic year 2007-08 are provided in the following table.
