§ 2. Mr. P. Williams
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will now announce plans for the provision of more school places in Aden.
§ Mr. Fisher
The Aden State Government's development plan for 1960–64 provided for approximately £550,000 to be spent on primary, intermediate and secondary schools, which increased the number of school places from 15,548 to 24,138.
After the 1st April, 1964, the responsibility for expenditure on educational development in Aden will rest with the Government of the Federation of South Arabia which, I understand, has plans for further increases.
