§ MR. HEALY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, in reference to the following extract from the Ordinances of the Queen's Colleges (page 317)—No Professor shall be entitled to claim the foes of any Class of Students, except so long as that Class shall be required by the Council to attend his instruction; and it shall be the duty of the Council to revise and amend the Regulations prescribing Courses of Study from time 1266 to time, whenever they deem it conducive to the interests of education and of the Students so to do, irrespective of considerations affecting the incomes of Professors,Whether medical students who intend presenting themselves for the degree of M. D. at the Royal University are, in the third year of their Course, compelled to pay for a Course of Lectures in Practical Anatomy to prosecute their dissections; has the practice only been a few years in existence; and, could he state when it began, and will it be continued?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
Sir, I have received Reports which go to show that there are no improper charges made; but if there are, they will be examined, and reported on, together with other matters which will come within the scope of the inquiry which the Government propose to institute. If I were to answer all the bearings of the Question, the answer would carry me to a great length.
