HC Deb 07 July 1873 vol 216 c1862

asked the Vice President of the Council, Whether, seeing that the Ballot Act does not apply to University Elections, it is the intention of the Government to bring in a Bill to regulate the time for holding Elections for the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and Dublin, such time being not now regulated by any Act of Parliament?


in reply, said, that the hon. Gentleman was quite right in believing that the Ballot Act did not affect the University Elections except as regarded the personation of electors. The Government did not think there was any reason to regulate the time of holding Elections for the Universities in consequence of the passing of the Ballot Act.
