HC Deb 15 February 1881 vol 258 cc889-90

asked the President of the Board of Trade, Whether any and what decision has been arrived at with regard to the recent application by a Limited Liability Company, having for one of its objects the granting of diplomas, and calling itself Trinity College, London, for a licence from the Board of Trade permitting the Company to omit the word "Limited" from its title?


, in reply, said, that he had, after careful consideration, come to the conclusion that this Company did not come within the scope of the enactment that enabled the Board of Trade to dispense with the use of the word "Limited" in cases of institutions not for the purposes of gain, but for the promotion of art, science, charity, commerce, or religion. Under these circumstances, he had declined the application. He ought to say that he had that afternoon received a further application from the College, in which it was proposed to restrict its object to the advancement of the art and science of music, and that application was now receiving his consideration.
