HC Deb 18 February 1904 vol 130 c259
MR. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will state the salaries of the Presidents of the Queen's Colleges in Cork, Galway, and Belfast, respectively; what are the duties of these gentlemen; whether their positions involve residence in these cities; and whether, as a matter of fact, they reside during all or a portion of the year at the places named, and, if only a portion of the year, whether he will state the period of residence each year.


The salary (£800) and the duties of the President of each of these colleges, are prescribed by the College Charters, a copy of which I have forwarded to the hon. Member. There is no express statutory requirement in respect to residence on the part of the President, who is responsible for the general conduct of affairs in the college. I have no information on the last part of the Question, but will endeavour to obtain it.
