HC Deb 21 November 1950 vol 481 cc37-8W
Mr. J. B. Hynd

asked the Secretary for the Colonies whether the Government of Kenya has accepted the recommendations of the Glancy Report on European and Asian educational expenditure, and, in particular, whether the Government has accepted the principle that each racial community should bear the major part of the cost of its own education and that the allotment from general revenues to non-native education should be divided equally between the European and Asian communities.

Mr. J. Griffiths

The Glancy Report did not recommend that the European and Asian communities should bear the major part of the cost of their own education. Its recommendations were concerned with the methods by which these communities should finance increases in the cost of their education over and above the level which could and should be met from general revenues and with the allocation between the races concerned of general revenue allotted to non-native education. These recommendations raise wide issues which are at present under consideration by the Government of Kenya.
