§ Mr. RENNIE SMITH
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the principal of Achimota was invited in 1927 by the Government of Nigeria to make a survey and report on native education in both provinces of Nigeria; whether Reports have been published; and whether it is the intention of the authorities to amalgamate the educational services of Southern and Northern Nigeria?
§ Mr. AMERY
As regards the first two parts of the question, I would invite reference to the reply which I returned on 25th June last to the hon. Member for Cardigan (Mr. Morris). It is proposed to appoint one director to advise and co-ordinate educational policy as far as possible, but no proposals for closer amalgamation have yet been put forward.
