HC Deb 26 March 1897 vol 47 c1528
SIR LEWIS McIVER (Edinburgh, W.)

moved:— That an humble address be presented to Her Majesty, praying Her Majesty to withhold her consent from the statute made by the governing body of Oriel College, Oxford, altering Statute IV. of the statutes of the college by the insertion after the 18th clause of a new clause numbered 18a.

MR. JAMES BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)

said he had been requested by the Provost of Oriel College to say, on behalf of the College, that they assented to the motion for the address being carried without a division, in the hope and expectation that the College would be able to frame and carry a provision respecting the selected candidates of the Indian Civil Service as would be approved by the India Office, as the guardians of the interests of that Service, and which they would regard as satisfactory.

SIR JOHN MOWBRAY (Oxford University)

desired, as the representative of the University of Oxford, to express the great satisfaction with which he had listened to the words of his right hon. Friend opposite.

Motion agreed to.

House adjourned at Twenty-five minutes before One o'clock till Monday next.
