HC Deb 24 July 1946 vol 426 c6W
41. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what action he is taking to give preliminary training in modern methods of agriculture and mining to those proceeding to take up employment in the African territories.

Mr. George Hall

Candidates selected for Government employment in the agricultural or mining Departments are required to possess knowledge of modern methods. Commercial mining concerns make their own arrangements in respect of the recruitment of trained personnel. Facilities for training prospective farmers in modern agricultural methods already exist in Kenya and are to be extended. They are also to be introduced in Northern Rhodesia.
