22. Mr. Braine

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the status and purpose of the National Scholarship Board in Nigeria under whose auspices eight students were recently awarded scholarships to attend the Communist-run University of Leipzig.

Mr. Dugdale

The so-called National Scholarship Board of Nigeria is a self-appointed body set up to choose candidates for scholarships provided by the Communist authorities in Eastern Germany.
