§ SIR JOHN LUBBOCK (London University)
asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether he can yet state the intentions of the Government as to giving any assistance to the English University Colleges?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT (Sir WILLIAM HART DYKE) (Kent, Dartford)
The Government are prepared to give some assistance to the English University Colleges; but the mode and principles of distribution raise very difficult questions, which must necessarily take some time to arrange. No arrangement has been made for a grant in connection with this year's Estimate.
