HC Deb 19 March 1886 vol 303 c1351

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If he will lay upon the Table of the House the application made by Trinity College, Dublin, in or about the year 1848, for Letters Patent to permit the Board to pay themselves their salaries out of the general funds of the College, and the subsequent Correspondence between the Government and the Board which culminated in a change of tenure of the lands of Trinity College, Dublin; and, whether the intervention of the Government has been sought in the present crisis by the holders of those lands?

THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. JOHN MORLEY) (Newcastle - on - Tyne)

There is no objection to laying on the Table of the House the document in question, if the hon. Member will move for it. Intervention was sought by Memorial addressed to the Prime Minister. I am not aware of any other application.
