HC Deb 07 August 1913 vol 56 c1771W

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the correspondence which has taken place and which has been published between the Lord Chancellor and the University of London in reference to the proposed site for the university on the Bedford estate, and especially to the passage in the letter from the Lord Chancellor to the vice-chancellor of the university, dated 13th July, 1913, in which the former stated that, in the event of certain negotiations with the Treasury failing, the House should not ask the university to move from its present position; and whether the Lord Chancellor is there speaking for himself or for the Government or on behalf of His Majesty's Treasury?


The letter in question refers only to the attitude which the Lord Chancellor personally and certain possible donors would assume towards the removal of the headquarters of the university, if the contingent negotiations with the Treasury mentioned in the correspondence were to fail.
