§ 8. Mr. Judd
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the present staff strength of the Community Development Department in Bechuanaland; and now many additional staff are required to introduce a viable programme throughout the territory.
§ Mr. Frederick Lee
Two Community Development officers, six assistant Community Development officers and 18 Community Development assistants. Ideally, the Bechuanaland Government would like to have an additional 92 trained village workers plus the necessary supervisory staff.
§ Mr. James Johnson
Will my right hon. Friend accept the general view in Africa that Africanisation of the Civil Service and services of this kind is important, and no more important than here in view of the contiguity of South Africa? Will he look at this matter particularly bearing in mind Question No. 7?
