HC Deb 13 February 1929 vol 225 c441W

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?


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.
