asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if the Governments in East Africa will take steps to train Africans to serve as stenographers, and thus avoid the necessity of the East Africa High Commissioner advertising in this country for stenographers at salaries between £648 and £729 per year with a gratuity of 13½ per cent. of the salary.

I have consulted the East African Governors on the subject and will write to the hon. Member when I have received their replies.
