HL Deb 12 March 1888 vol 323 c817

said, that in the absence of his noble Friend (Earl Granville) he desired to ask the Lord President of the Council, Whether he has made up his mind as to the manner in which he would deal with the application for a charter for a Teaching University in London and other like applications for charters; and whether he has come to a conclusion as to a Royal Commission on the subject?


, in reply, said, that he had come to the determination to recommend the issue of a Royal Commission to inquire into the subject, which was one dealing with a large number of interests. He thought the Commission need not be a large one, and then they would get through the work more speedily, and perhaps in time to report this Session.
