Abstract

SIR JOHN LUBBOCK seems to have a mistaken conception of the nature of the right of veto possessed by the Convocation of the University of London. The Charter of that University provides that Convocation shall have “the power of accepting any new or supplemental Charter for the University or consenting to the surrender of this our Charter.” But such provisions cannot limit the action of Parliament. The provision is similar to the reference to Convocation at both Oxford and Cambridge of new statutes and of all alterations in old statutes proposed by the Council of the University. Our statutes take the place of the Charter of the University of London in many respects.
