HC Deb 24 April 1884 vol 287 cc455-6

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council, Whether an inquiry has yet been instituted into the financial condition of Aberystwith College with a view of deciding upon the expediency of continuing the present grant to the College; and, when he will be in a position to state to the House the decision of the Government?


We are in communication with the hon. Member for Montgomeryshire (Mr. Rendel), who so ably represents the Governing Body of Aberystwith College. He has undertaken to submit, as soon as possible, a further statement for the consideration of the Education Department and the Treasury as to the present and prospective position and claims of the College, and the probable increase of local contributions.
