HC Deb 23 April 1874 vol 218 c985

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Wheany application has been made by the Board or Fellows of Trinity College, Dublin, for a Queen's Letter, altering essentially the Statutes of the College: and, whether before the issue of any Queen's Letter, an opportunity will be given to the Senate of the University, or to this House, of expressing an opinion upon the proposed alterations?


, in reply, said, that as far as he was able to learn, no application of the kind had been made up to the present moment. No such application had been made either to the Home Office or to the Irish Office in London, and if such application were made the Government would think it right that the House should have an opportunity of considering the matter.
