HL Deb 12 March 1981 vol 418 c507WA
Lord Brockway

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will reconsider their decision to reduce or terminate aid to the supply of British teachers in Kenya's secondary schools in view of their influence in educating people for administration, social work and industry.

The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (Lord Carrington)

The reduction in the number of British secondary school teachers who receive supplementation salary from the aid programme has been planned with the agreement of the Government of Kenya. To balance this reduction of support for secondary schools we have directed more of our aid to teacher training and other educational activities which will help Kenya to staff its education system with its own nationals. Supplementation policy is reviewed regularly with the Kenya Government; the next review will be later this year.
