HC Deb 27 April 1950 vol 474 c142W
Mr. Kenneth Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, how many African, and how many white students, respectively, have been granted bursaries by the Kenya Government since 1945 for the purpose of studying law in the United Kingdom; and how many applications were refused to each category.

Mr. J. Griffiths

Five bursaries have been given to European students from Kenya to study law in the United Kingdom since 1945, three of them being ex-Service men's awards. None in the particular field of law has been awarded to an African student. I am making inquiry of the Governor of Kenya about the number of applications refused and the reason for their refusal and will communicate with my hon. Friend on receipt of the reply.
