HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL

1 Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 7 April.

Decree (1): Composition fees (displaced students)

Explanatory note

Five years ago Council made a decree remitting from the overseas to the `home' rate the composition fees payable by displaced students from war-affected areas of the former Yugoslavia (Decree (2) of 23 March 1995, Gazette, Vol. 125, p. 914). Council considers that it is no longer appropriate for such remission to be granted automatically, although it is of course still open to colleges to make applications for remission on behalf of individual students from the area on the merits of each case. The following decree accordingly rescinds the earlier provision.

Text of Decree (1)

Decree (2) of 23 March 1995 (Gazette, Vol. 125, p. 914) is hereby rescinded.
