HC Deb 07 February 1929 vol 224 c1953W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in view of the formal request of the senate of the University of London and of the expressed wish of the Leathersellers' Company (in whose gift the exhibitions actually are) that certain exhibitions, known as the Elliott, Mosely, Humble and Holden exhibitions, now restricted to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge should be extended to London University, he will reconsider the proposed refusal of the Board of Education to extend the tenure of these exhibitions to include London University?


In view of the legal principles which the Board are bound to observe in making schemes for educational endowments, I am unable to reconsider this decision.
