HC Deb 26 June 1958 vol 590 cc35-6W
50. Mr. Owen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what provisions exist for the encouragement of the training of women teachers in Uganda and Kenya; how many studentships there are for this purpose; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Profumo

In Kenya, there are three Government and twenty grant-aided centres at which 870 African women were being taught in 1957; no fees are charged. There are also two colleges training 130 Asian women where fees are charged at low rates.

In Uganda, at the end of 1956 there were three Government, 35 aided and one unaided teacher training centres at which 1,366 African women and 40 Asian women were being trained. No fees are charged for African women being trained; I have not the details of fees for Asians.
