HC Deb 08 February 1962 vol 653 c599
30. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what action is being taken in Northern Rhodesia on the recommendations of the Keir Report on Technical and Commercial Training, particularly to provide an expansion of technical education for Africans; and what resources his department will contribute towards improving educational facilities.

Mr. Maudling

I am asking the Governor for a further report and will communicate with the hon. Member when I receive it. Responsibility for assistance towards technical education now rests with my right hon. Friend the Secretary for Technical Co-operation who, I understand, has recently agreed in principle to the making of a colonial development and welfare grant towards the completion of the College for Further Education in Lusaka.
