HC Deb 27 February 1928 vol 214 cc10-1
26. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what comparable amounts are voted for native African education, in the last available year, in Uganda, Kenya, Tanganyika, Nyassaland, Northern Rhodesia, and the Sudan; how much this amounts to per head of the native population; and in which of these countries is such education entrusted to the missionaries?

which colonies, protectorates or mandated territories he is referring, I will make the necessary inquiries, provided that the territory in question is one for the administration of whose internal affairs I am responsible.

Not that I am aware of.
