HC Deb 19 July 1901 vol 97 c1000
MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state why the appointments to certain medical professorships in the Queen's College, Belfast, have been limited to a term of seven years, whereas in the Queen's College, Cork, similar appointments have been recently made for life.


The system of limiting these appointments to a term of seven years, with power of re-appointment on the expiration of the period, applies equally to each of the Queen's Colleges in Ireland. There are two cases in the Cork College and one in the Belfast College to which the practice, through a misunderstanding or oversight, was not applied.
