HC Deb 06 December 1944 vol 406 c554W
Mr. Pearson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what active steps are being taken for providing secondary and technical education for European children in Northern Rhodesia, in view of the information that no vacancies will exist for Northern Rhodesian children in 1945 in Southern Rhodesia, thus leaving an only alternative of sending Northern Rhodesian children to the Union of South Africa schools.

Colonel Stanley

The Northern Rhodesia Government is at present examining the Report of a Committee appointed to consider whether facilities for secondary education beyond form 11 for European children resident in Northern Rhodesia should be provided by Government within the Territory or at schools in a neighbouring country. As regards the immediate future I have already asked the Governor for a report and I will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as it is received.
