HC Deb 21 March 1906 vol 154 cc395-6

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will lay upon the Table of the House copies of the Minutes of Proceedings in the Senate of the Royal University relating to the exhibition of disloyalty by students at the last conferment of degrees, and the powers of the Senate for dealing with such matters, together with the correspondence which has passed between the Irish Government and the Senate upon this subject since October last.


I have referred this Question to the Secretaries of the Royal University in order to ascertain whether there would be any objection on the part of the Senate to the publication of the minutes of proceedings referred to, and I am informed that the matter will be laid before the Senate for consideration at its next meeting in May. In the meantime it will be premature to consider the question of publishing the correspondence referred to in the latter part of the Question.
