HC Deb 05 June 1959 vol 606 c53W
Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of Slate for the Colonies the number of Africans in Northern Rhodesia who have been given official assistance to undertake training in Great Britain and elsewhere in co-operative methods, the number of these who are members of societies and officials of the Cooperative Department, respectively, the length of their courses, and the total expenditure for this purpose during the past five years.

Mr. J. Amery

Five Africans received such assistance, all being officials of the Co-operative Department, 3 took eleven-month courses and 2 three-month courses. Expenditure from official sources so far amounts to £2,413, but in two cases final claims for travel and subsistence allowances have not been received.
