The State and Higher Education

The State and Higher Education MR. CHAMBERLAIN, in moving a vote of thanks to the Lord Chancellor—who as Warden of the University of Birmingham gave an address in Birmingham on May 13—delivered a speech empha sising the importance to the nation of higher scientific education. During his remarks Mr. Chamberlain directed attention to the fact that the University of Birmingham is indebted to the local authority for an income of 6000l. a year, and referred regretfully to the circumstance that the neighbouring local authorities have not contributed very largely to the funds of the university. It must be admitted that the contribution of the city of Birmingham to its university is a handsome tribute to the value attached by the local authority to university instruction, and we join with the Chancellor of the university in hoping that suitable sums of money will be devoted in the near future by local authorities in adjoining areas to the purposes of higher education in the Midlands. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nature Springer Journals

Abstract

MR. CHAMBERLAIN, in moving a vote of thanks to the Lord Chancellor—who as Warden of the University of Birmingham gave an address in Birmingham on May 13—delivered a speech empha sising the importance to the nation of higher scientific education. During his remarks Mr. Chamberlain directed attention to the fact that the University of Birmingham is indebted to the local authority for an income of 6000l. a year, and referred regretfully to the circumstance that the neighbouring local authorities have not contributed very largely to the funds of the university. It must be admitted that the contribution of the city of Birmingham to its university is a handsome tribute to the value attached by the local authority to university instruction, and we join with the Chancellor of the university in hoping that suitable sums of money will be devoted in the near future by local authorities in adjoining areas to the purposes of higher education in the Midlands.
