Motion text

That this House believes that bogus colleges set up with the express purpose of enabling prospective immigrants to bypass ordinary UK immigration controls, and not providing education and training, prey on unsuspecting students from overseas and are damaging the reputation of UK education; and further believes that the future use of the word `college' in business titles should be restricted under the Companies Act 2006.
