HC Deb 09 July 1866 vol 184 cc755-6

I beg to give Notice that on the first available day for the transaction of public business I will ask the late Chancellor of the Exchequer (Mr. Gladstone), Whether, notwithstanding the assurance given by the right hon. Gentleman in the early part of the Session that no changes would be made in the Constitution of the Queen's University in Ireland until an opportunity had been afforded to the House of challenging the policy of the Government and before the Crown had committed any formal act on the subject, it is the case that a new or supplemental charter received the Queen's signature some three weeks ago, and to which the Great Seal has now been affixed; and, if so, what is the interpretation to be given to the solemn pledge of the right hon. Gentleman; and whether in a matter of this public importance, after the assurances given, such a proceeding as that referred to appears to the right hon. Gentleman altogether consistent with good faith?
