The Tanganyika Government has now assumed full responsibility for the Overseas Food Corporation's Technical School at Ifunda. As regards schools for the children of African employees, the Government make a capital grant equal, subject to a prescribed maximum, to half the cost of buildings, and a recurrent grant equal to 95 per cent. of the salaries of registered teachers. No capital grant is made in respect of European schools, but the Government make a recurrent grant equal to total recurrent costs.
