HL Deb 04 August 1904 vol 139 c844

Order of the day for the Second Reading read.


My Lords, This Bill is mutatis mutandis identical with the Liverpool Bill which has just passed through Committee in your Lordships' House. The Leeds case is precisely on all fours. The University College of Liverpool and the Leeds University were both Colleges of the now dispossessed Victoria University, and the object of this Bill is to continue to the Leeds University the privileges which the Victoria University formerly possessed.

Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a."—(The Marquess of Ripon.)

On Question, Bill read 2a, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House to-morrow.
