§ SIR W. J. COLLINS (St. Pancras, W.)
To ask the Prime Minister whether he has now considered the memorial presented to him last session on behalf of the members of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, asking him to take such steps as might secure to members some voice in the management of the College and its property; whether any 602 representations have been made by the Privy Council to the College of Surgeons and with what result; and whether he will lay upon the Table of the House copies of any communications which have passed.
(Answered by Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman.) The memorial mentioned in the Question was transmitted to the council of the college by the Lord President, and, subsequently to the receipt of their observations thereon, Lord Crewe saw a deputation from the society of members. The society have since furnished a rejoinder to the observations of the council, which has been forwarded to that body with an intimation that the Lord President is willing to receive a deputation from them in due course.
