§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON
asked the Secretary for Scotland, Whether the Government intend to fill up the vacant office of Principal of St. Mary's College, St. Andrew's?
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. TREVELYAN)
The Royal Commission on the Scotch Universities recommend that there should be only one Principal of St. Andrew's University. In order to effect this change, the authority of Parliament is required, which can be obtained in the Scotch University Bill, which we hope shortly to introduce. Meanwhile, the Government do not propose to appoint a Principal Primarius Professorship of Divinity, but to wait till that office is separated from the Principalship of St. Mary's College.
