The Universities Commission Report



    THE publication of this Report has been awaited with an interest which rarely attends the issue of a Blue Book: and though the Commissioners have taken two years and a half over their labours, the result, both in its matter and its form, fully justifies their apparent delay. We have here presented to us in a concise and intelligible shape, the entire financial affairs of the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge with their Colleges. The whole property of these wealthy institutions, its sources and its application, the probability of its increase, and their annual income and expenditure, are now for the first time laid before the public.
