§ MR. SUMMERS (Huddersfield)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in filling the vacancy in the Presidency of Queen's College, Belfast, he will have regard to the scholastic and literary attainments of the candidates rather than to their religious or theological opinions?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I have no doubt the Lord Lieutenant will, in making the submission of a name, give due weight to all the circumstances of the case.
§ DR. TANNER (Cork, Mid)
I trust that the Lord Lieutenant will take into consideration the claims of distinguished men who have been educated in the University.
