HC Deb 26 May 1924 vol 174 cc2-3
2. Mr. BAKER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India what facilities are open to the people of India to enable students to secure a training in industrial and commercial pursuits; and whether he will supply a list of the technical schools in India where a first-rate economic and commercial education can be obtained?


Detailed information regarding facilities for industrial and commercial training provided in Government educational institutions in India is given in the Review of the Progress of Education in India, 1917–22, of which I am sending a copy to the hon. Member. In the year 1921–22, 276 institutions of the kind were being maintained, with 14,082 students. A complete list of all these institutions could not he obtained without reference to each of the local Governments in India which are separately responsible for education.

3. Mr. BAKER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether degrees in commerce and engineering are obtainable in India by Indian students; and, if so, whether there are any obstacles which prevent such qualified students practising their professions within British India?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative; to the second pail, in the negative.
