§ 49. Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation why he is stopping publication of the official magazine, Overseas Education.
§ Mr. Vosper
Overseas Education has been a professional journal mainly designed for and largely contributed to by people engaged on long-term assignments on education overseas. Now that we are relying principally on short-term recruitment, the need for this particular journal has decreased, and the editor has found it increasingly difficult to obtain contributions. After very careful 159W thought I came to the conclusion that I should not be justified in continuing the subvention for this journal: I wish to pay warm tribute to the work that it has done.
