HC Deb 03 March 1873 vol 214 cc1181-2

gave Notice that in the event of a division not being taken on the Amendment of the hon. Member for King's Lynn (Mr. Bourke), or on that of the noble Lord the Member for Huntingdon (Lord Robert Montagu), he should move an Amendment to the following effect:— That this House, while ready to assist Her Majesty's Government in passing a measure for the advancement of learning in Ireland, is of opinion that for the purpose of supplying to Parliament information of which it is not now in possession, it is expedient that a Royal Commission should be appointed to take the evidence of academic bodies and of persons interested in higher education in Ireland, as to the causes that impede the full success of University Education in that Country, and as to the best means of overcoming them, and that an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, praying that She will be graciously pleased to issue such Commission.
