I WOULD ask whether it is quite fair to assume that, because Convocation has rejected the Charter proposed for the University of London, it therefore follows that that body is out of sympathy with the attempts that are being made to establish a “real University,” whatever that may mean. Is it not possible that a large proportion of those adverse votes were recorded because there were elements in the scheme which were felt to be impracticable or open to serious objection? At all events, I feel sure that there are many who would refrain from regarding the vote as being an expression on the main issue.
