§ Mr. Swingler
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (Central African Office) how many students from Northern Rhodesia are at present being trained in the United Kingdom to become district officers; what proportion of them is African; what educational qualifications they possess in each case; and what steps are being taken to encourage more Africans to undertake such courses.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
Ten, of whom two are Africans, both holding university degrees. The Northern Rhodesia Government makes every effort to find local African officers suitable for training as potential district officers either in the United Kingdom or at the University College in Salisbury.
