HC Deb 19 March 1957 vol 567 cc43-4W
Sir L. Plummer

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations to state the number of Africans from each Colonial, Trusteeship, and Protectorate territory, respectively, who are enrolled as students at the University of Salisbury for the years 1957–60; the proportion of African to European students; and the extent to which it is proposed to increase the number of African students.

Mr. Alport

The university authorities state that eight African, one Asian and sixty-five European students are enrolled at the University of Rhodesia and Nyasaland in Salisbury, and that one of the Africans is from Northern Rhodesia and two from Nyasaland, as well as five from Southern Rhodesia. The admission of students is a matter for the College Council.
