asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many Africans and women serve on the Council of Makerere College.

Will my right hon. Friend take some steps to see that Africans and women are given adequate representation on the Council of this college?

The constitution is one which has been agreed in consultation with the Inter-University Council of this country, and there is no reason at all why, from the various groups who now make up the Council, Africans or more women should not be appointed.

In view of the fact that there is only one African on it cannot some steps be taken to see why more Africans do not serve on the Council?

There are no Africans, but the opportunity to serve on the Council is there and I will bring this to the notice of the chairman of the Council.
