HC Deb 27 November 1950 vol 481 c120W
Mr. J. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what amount of capital expenditure has been incurred by the Kenya Government since the beginning of 1948 on European, Asian and African schools and institutes in Kenya.

Mr. J. Griffiths

The following are the figures for the period from the beginning of 1948 to the end of 1950. European £1,140,809, Asian £502,381, African £401,727. One reason for the large expenditure on European schools is that these years happen to coincide with the construction of two large secondary schools, on which £646,199 has been expended to date. These schools provide secondary education for European children from Uganda and Tanganyika as well as from Kenya. The figures, of course, include no provision for Makerere College.
