HC Deb 01 August 1944 vol 402 cc1202-3W
Mr. Riley

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has yet received Reports from the two Committees which have recently visited West Africa and the West Indies, respectively, to inquire into higher education; and whether the Reports will be published and made available to the public.

Colonel Stanley

Neither body has yet reported. The Committee which visited the West Indies will, of course, report in the first instance to the Asquith Commission on Higher Education on whose behalf, with my concurrence, it undertook these inquiries in the Caribbean area. I hope that it will be possible to publish both Reports, but naturally I cannot commit myself on that point until I have received and considered the documents.
