asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what percentage of scholars from Basutoland, who have taken advantage of a university course, take posts in Basutoland in the teaching profession and in any other official positions, respectively; and what pay do they command.

It is estimated that about a quarter of the Basutoland students who have taken a university teaching course, have subsequently taken posts in Government and mission schools in Basutoland. The normal salary scale is from £220 to £450, and in addition they receive free quarters. Only one medical student has passed a university course. He is now in private practice in Basutoland.
