asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what arrangements exist for the seconding of teachers from the United Kingdom for service in primary and secondary schools in Tanganyika.
Teachers appointed to Tanganyika can preserve their superannuation rights in this country, and it is possible for secondment to be agreed in individual cases by arrangement between the teacher and the employing authority in this country. This is dependent upon the authority being able to guarantee that a post will be available for the teacher on his return.
Can the hon. Gentle- man say whether the existence of these arrangements is producing any large number of teachers going on secondment to Tanganyika? Will he also tell us whether this sort of thing is one of the topics which are now being discussed?
