§ Mr. JOHN O'DONNELL
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, in view of the public interest taken in the national universities in Ireland, he will without further delay cause the statutes and regulations to be published; and whether it has yet been decided that Irish will be an essential subject for matriculation?1125W
§ Mr BIRRELL
Statutes for the government of the new Universities are in the first instance to be made by the Commissioners appointed under the Irish Universities Act. Regulations are to be made at the discretion of the Senates of the Universities as provided by their charters. The making and publication of the Statutes and regulations is not, therefore, within my control. The subjects of study are to be prescribed by regulations of the Universities.
