HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 c359W
37. Dr. A. Thompson

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation whether he will make a statement on the progress of British participation in the Commonwealth Educational Co-operation Scheme.

Mr. R. Carr

The extent of our progress is indicated by the fact that expenditure on the scheme, which was only £ 335,000 in its first year (1960) is expected to be almost £ 2 million this year. In addition, we shall be putting forward at the Ottawa Conference next month proposals for further improvements and expansions.
