§ Order for the Second Reading read.
§ THE EARL OF DERBY
, in moving the second reading of the Oxford University Bill, said, the object of the Bill was to extend the power of making statutes possessed by the University, and to make further provision for the administration of justice in the Chancellor's Court. For the former purpose the Bill enabled the University to make regulations in reference to certain Professorships, to suppress certain Professorships when no longer required, to annex conditions to certain Professorships, and to vary the trusts of certain 543 scholarships. All statutes passed under this Bill were to be submitted to Her Majesty in Council in the same manner as required by the University Act. The 12th section simply gave power to the Vice Chancellor to make rules for the regulation of his Court.
§ Bill read 2a, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Monday next.
