HC Deb 09 November 1955 vol 545 c195W
92. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why the appointment of a new Principal to Fourah Bay College, Sierra Leone, has been so long delayed.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Considerable efforts have been made by my Advisory Committee on Colonial Colleges of Arts, Science and Technology to attract applicants for this post. This process has unfortunately taken longer than I or my Advisory Committee wished, but I hope that an announcement about the appointment of a new Principal will be made very shortly.
