Clause 5 (Power to make statutes).
, in moving an Amendment to the effect that the statutes should be laid before Parliament, instead of being confirmed by the Chancellor of the University as Visitor of the College, said, reforms had in several instances been prevented at Oxford by interference of the Visitor, and it certainly was not right that one person should have the power of over-riding the opinion of the Governing Body.
