British Guiana, Mauritius, Fiji, and Trinidad, respectively; and what proportion these numbers bear in each case to the total population of the Colony?
§ Dr. SHIELS
In 1928 the number of teachers (including pupil teachers) employed in State-aided primary schools in British Guiana was as follows:
East Indian … … … 119 Others … … … 1,345
I have not the exact figures showing the number of Europeans included in the latter category; nor is information available regarding the secondary schools. The officer administering the Government is being asked to supply these particulars, if they can be obtained.
