HC Deb 10 July 1958 vol 591 cc558-9
23. Mr. Malcolm MacPherson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the number of Government scholarships awarded to Africans from Tanganyika for study at university level during 1957, and the number of these awarded for the study of law.

Mr. Profumo

Ten in the United Kingdom, including one for the study of law.

Mr. MacPherson

In view of the small proportion given to the study of law and the small number of applicants for such scholarships, will the hon. Gentleman do all he can to encourage more Africans to study law in view of the desirability of the courts of the Territory being staffed by Africans.

Mr. Profumo

Yes, Sir.

Dr. Summerskill

Can the hon. Gentleman say how many of these scholarships were for the study of medicine?

Mr. Profumo
