Motion text

That this House salutes the excellent work by HOST UK which has enabled more than 35,000 international students over the past 20 years to live in a British family; welcomes the fact that this scheme allows international students to understand first hand British culture and beliefs; is dismayed at the recent decision by the Government to withdraw its funding to HOST UK, without which the charity cannot survive; and calls upon the Government to look again at the withdrawal of HOST UK's funding and to re-instate the £140,000 per annum needed to keep HOST UK financially viable.
