§ 19. Mr. Russell
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps are being taken to train suitable teaching staff for the three regional colleges which are to be established in Nigeria, Sierra Leone and the Gold Coast.
No special training of teaching staff is proposed at present. Fully qualified lecturers for the reconstituted Fourah Bay College are now being recruited by advertising both in the United Kingdom and in West Africa. It is hoped to start similar recruitment 1275 shortly for the Nigerian College of Arts, Science and Technology and for the Gold Coast Regional College.
§ Mr. Russell
Is the Minister satisfied that by the time these colleges are opened he will have sufficient teaching staff?
