HC Deb 06 March 1958 vol 583 c148W
96. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps are being taken to increase the number of inter-denominational schools in Uganda to enable children to attend the school nearest their homes rather than travel long distances to the nearest appropriate denominational school.

Mr. Profumo

All grant-aided schools in the Protectorate are inter-denominational and it is Government policy to establish inter-denominational schools where there are good reasons for doing so. It is left to local education authorities to decide in the light of local circumstances what type of primary school is necessary.
