HC Deb 09 July 1957 vol 573 c192
40. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many of the students at the new farm institute at Bukalasa, Uganda, are African, Asian and European, respectively; what are their fees; what financial assistance is available to students; and how many are women students.

Mr. Profumo

The fifty-two students, all of whom at present are male Africans, are charged a fee of £15 a year towards the cost of tuition, board and accommodation. In cases of need Government bursaries up to this amount are awarded and, in addition, each student so assisted receives a personal allowance of £12 a year.

Mr. Rankin

Am I to understand from that Answer that there are no Asian or European students?

Mr. Profumo

That is correct. There are not at present, but I am not aware of any restriction on them.
