HC Deb 22 May 1946 vol 423 cc88-9W
99. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether there are any previsions for training colonial subjects in accountancy; and whether any scholarships are available to colonial students to study this subject in Britain.

Mr. George Hall

Facilities exist in some Colonies both for studies in accountancy at Higher Colleges and for pupils to he articled to qualified accountants. Some scholarships have already been granted for training in this country. I have also tinder consideration the provision of scholarships under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act, to enable Colonial residents to qualify for higher posts in the public service, including posts in which qualified accountants are required.
