§ 17. Mr. G. Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the cost of education in Kenya for each European, Indian and African pupil, respectively, during the last year.
§ Mr. Lyttelton
Since the answer contains a large number of figures giving gross cost and net cost—after deduction of fees—for primary and secondary education, tuition and board, I will, with permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Mr. Thomas
I shall be grateful, but would the Minister tell me now how European, Indian and African costs roughly compare with each other?
§ Following is the information:
§ Table I gives the gross cost and Table II the net cost after deduction of revenue from fees chargeable.
|Secondary (combined cost of boarding and tuition)||60||15|
|Secondary (tuition and boarding)|
