§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON
asked the Secretary for Scotland, What course the Government intend to take with respect to the two vacant Principalships and the vacant Professorship in the University of St. Andrews?
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. TREVELYAN)
The Government hope, in a few days, to fill up the Principalship of the United College of St. Salvator and St. Leonard and the Physiological Chair at Aberdeen. With regard to the Principalship of St. Mary's College and the vacant Divinity Professorship, to which it has been attached, the Government are considering the obligations under which they are laid by the Report of the Royal Commission of 1878 and their legal position with regard to the recommendations of that Report.
