§ MR. HAYDEN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the exact amount of time during each term in the past three years spent in the college by the President of the Queen's College, Cork.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WYNDHAM,) Dover
There is no official record kept of the absences of the Presidents of the Queen's Colleges. I have already stated that the President of the Cork College has made it a rule to be in Cork during term except when public business connected with the National Board of Education, or business connected with the Royal University (of the Standing Committee of the Senate of which he is a member), or considerations of health, have obliged him to be elsewhere.
§ MR. JOHN REDMOND (Waterford)
Can the right hon. Gentleman say if it is not the fact that this gentleman resides almost entirely out of Cork, and [is very seldom there at all?
§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
Does he take any part whatever in the teaching. Has he any degree for any University?
