HC Deb 06 July 1920 vol 131 cc1258-9W

Major HENDERSON asked the Secretary for Scotland whether Professor Ludwig Becker is still on leave of absence, with full pay, from Glasgow University; and, if so, whether he can bring pressure to bear on the University authorities to terminate a situation which has existed ever since March, 1916?

Mr. MUNRO: I understand that the position is as stated in the first part of the question. The University Court have taken action under the Universities (Scotland) Act, 1858, with a view to bringing about the retirement of Professor Becker, and the resolution of the Court is now before the Privy Council.
