§ Mr. Sorensen
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, with a view to the more rapid development of an African medical service, he will make an inquiry into the possibility of creating a medical school in West Africa?
Mr. M. MacDonald
A school of medicine has been established in Nigeria for a number of years and is making good progress. The whole question of the future development of higher education, including medical education, in West Africa is to be discussed at the Conference of West African Governors which is to be held in August.
