After the Re-establishment
Britain’s decision to reopen Hong Kong University without increased funding meant that the institution would once again be gripped by financial problems. One study after another was made, culminating in the Jennings-Logan report, whose findings were widely accepted, with Governor Grantham acknowledging the need for a very substantial increase in the government’s subvention. A report by the Keswick Committee recommending that the university should teach certain courses in Chinese was accepted by the vice-chancellor but ultimately found to be unworkable. In the end, the government decided on a second university, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and a second medical school.
