HC Deb 30 January 1962 vol 652 cc76-7W
28. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation what progress he is making in recruiting United Kingdom graduates to undertake teacher training at Makerere College as a preliminary to teaching in East Africa.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I have been asked to reply.

Recruitment has already started through University Appointments Boards; the scheme covers both teachers who are to undergo further training at Makerere and those who have been fully trained before they go to East Africa. It follows an Anglo-American scheme undertaken last year, for which the Americans provided the great majority of the teachers—assistance which we very much appreciated. We hope for further substantial American participation this year and are also planning for a considerably larger British part in the scheme.
