§ MR. SEXTON
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what steps have been taken to provide the medical students of Queen's College, Belfast, with a Summer Session for dissection?
§ MR. JACKSON
The President of the Queen's College, Belfast, reports that no application for a Summer Session in anatomy has been made to the authorities of the College, nor, in his opinion, is such a Session necessary.
§ MR. JACKSON
I do not know that he has any power to consider it. I have told the hon. Member that in his opinion such Session is not necessary.
MR. P. O'BRIEN
Arising out of this question I wish to ask your ruling on a point of Order. Two or three days ago I handed a question to the Clerk at the Table addressed to the Chief Secretary, asking him why the authorities of Queen's College, Cork, interfered with the students and refused to allow them to take part in some athletic sports under the rules of the Gaelic Athletic Association, whilst a few days afterwards they were allowed to take part in a football match under Rugby rules. I was informed that the question was not permissible because this House has nothing to do with Queen's College——
§ * MR. SPEAKER
I recollect the question perfectly. I struck it out because I thought it was too utterly trivial to submit to the attention of the House.
