HC Deb 28 May 1897 vol 49 c1520

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether it is contemplated to restore the College of Science, Dublin, to its original constitution as embodied in the Report of the Commission held in 1866; and whether, as that report was drawn up and signed by the best authorities of local requirements, including Dr. Sullivan, Sir Robert Kane, Professor Tyndall, and Lord Rosse, being amongst the experts, the proposed new college will be included amongst the institutions to be governed by local authority?


The college is carried on in accordance with the Report referred to, with some slight modifications. The Report did not contemplate its being governed by local authority.
