HC Deb 16 December 1929 vol 233 cc1003-5W
Major POLE

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the number of native, East Indian, and European teachers in the State-aided primary and secondary schools in British Guiana?

British Guiana, Mauritius, Fiji, and Trinidad, respectively; and what proportion these numbers bear in each case to the total population of the Colony?


I subjoin a statement giving the figures as estimated on 31st December, 1928:


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.
