§ Mr. M. MacPherson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what plans exist for the future development of the Gordon Memorial College, Khartoum.
§ Mr. Bevin
The Gordon Memorial College has at present some 350 students and it is hoped to incorporate the Kitchener School of Medicine in it next year. £E200,000 have been spent on buildings and equipment during the last five years and the expenditure of approximately £E550,000 on the college's development is envisaged during the next five years. By 1955 the student population is expected to be about 800, and it is hoped to bring the college to full university status between 1955 and 1960.
