HC Deb 14 May 1957 vol 570 cc13-4W
Mr. Brockway

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what amounts will be spent for the years 1957–58, respectively, on European, Asian and African education in Kenya.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

, pursuant to his reply [OFFICIAL REPORT, 15th April, 1957; Vol. 568, c. 169], supplied the following information:

The Estimates now laid before the Kenya Legislative Council for the Kenya financial year 1957–58 provide for net expenditure on education for the various races as follows:

Race Recurrent Expenditure Capital Expenditure (Development Plan)
£ £
European 534,439 253,000
Asian (including Goan) 832,540 250,622
Arab 69,447 30,643
African 2,467,398 383,643

These figures exclude the costs of the general administrative establishment of the Education Department, of technical education, higher education and special schemes, and of loan charges and maintenance of buildings, in respect of which a breakdown by race is not available; they also leave out of account various appropriations-in-aid which cannot easily be assigned.
