Ceredigion student exchange hosts ban prompts concern

A ban on letting children on school exchange trips stay with host families abroad because of fears about their safety could be backed by councillors in Ceredigion later.

The policy, first adopted last year, also stops foreign students staying with families when visiting Ceredigion.

The authority's cabinet is asked to formally approve the policy on Tuesday.

Selwyn Waters, chairman of the Lampeter Twinning Association, said Ceredigion's rules stopped the organisation taking school children to Saint-Germain-sur-Moine in France, which is twinned with the town.
