HC Deb 30 June 1960 vol 625 c146W
Dr. A. Thompson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what degrees can be taken by African students undertaking courses of study in technical colleges in the territories of East and Central Africa for which he is responsible.

Mr. Iain Macleod

There are at present no facilities for students at technical colleges in East Africa to study for degrees. When the Royal Technical College of East Africa at Nairobi has been reconstituted as a University College its Governing Council will no doubt be considering, however, whether such facilities can be introduced. Higher education in the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland is the responsibility of the Federal authorities.
