Nature volume 81, pages 113114 (22 July 1909) | Download Citation



THE higher education subcommittee of the education committee of the London County Council has had under consideration the relations which it is desirable should subsist between the University of London and other institutions of university rank in the metropolitan area and the London County Council. The subcommittee's report was presented to the education committee towards the end of May, and contains, not only a valuable résumé of the various steps taken by the late London Technical Education Board and by the Council itself to improve the supply of higher education in London, but also an important collection of statistics concerning the financial aid given by municipal and other authorities in the great provincial centres of population.
