HC Deb 16 March 1962 vol 655 cc193-4W
Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation if he will give details of the educational assistance offered to Nyasaland following the recent visit of Mr. Kanyamo Chiume, the Minister of Education.

Mr. Vosper

Mr. Chiume took the opportunity of his recent visit to this country as the guest of the British Council to discuss in detail with my Department and others Nyasaland's needs in respect of educational development, including the supply of teachers, training, technical education and advice on school building. Plans to help Nyasaland in each of these fields and some others have been or are being worked out and we are in close touch with Mr. Chiume. With regard to technical education we have arranged for Mr. R. E. Ward, the Principal of the Leicester College of Technology and Commerce, to make a short visit to Nyasaland to explore further the possibilities of our helping in this field.
