§ 21. Major Sir ALAN McLEAN
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the recommendations contained in paragraphs 44 and 45 of the report of the departmental committee on the reconstruction of the Royal Veterinary College have been given effect to; and, if so, to what extent?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Elliot)
The Governors have accepted in principle the recommendations to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers, but action has been deferred until the re-building of the College is approaching completion. I understand that they have recently been advised that it will be necessary for them to apply for a new charter, and that a draft is in course of preparation.
§ Sir A. McLEAN
Does not my right hon. Friend think, having regard to the large sums which have been provided out of public funds for the reconstruction of this college, that it would be better to reconstitute the government of this college before the money is spent, rather than after?
