asked the Vice President of the Council, Whether it is intended by the Governing Body of 335 Wellington College to carry out the recommendations of the Royal Commission on that Institution, especially as regards the appointment of a''small executive Committee, whose avocations would permit them to devote a constant attention to their duties;whether any members of that Committee will be nominated by the Military authorities, as desired by Army Officers; and, on what date the Annual Report on the financial working of the College will be presented to Parliament, in accordance with the strongly expressed opinion of the Royal Commission on that subject?

Sir, I have communicated with the Governors of Wellington College, and I am requested to give the following answer to the Question of the hon. Member:—The Governing Body of Wellington College have appointed a small committee consisting of five members—two of whom are officers of the Army. That committee is now engaged in carrying out such recommendations of the Royal Commission as, in the opinion of the Governors, will conduce to the best interests of the College. An annual Report of the financial working of the College will be presented to the Queen, through the Secretary of State, in the month of March in each year.
