Kings Parade is a historical street in central Cambridge, England. The street continues north as Trinity Street and St Johns Street and it is a major tourist area in Cambridge, commanding a central position in the University of Cambridge area of the city. It is a place frequented by cyclists and by students travelling between lectures during term-time. Kings College is located on the west side of the street, hence the name, on the street, just to the north, is the University of Cambridge Senate House, mainly used for degree ceremonies. This area is known as Senate House Hill, opposite the Senate House is Great St Marys, the historic University Church. The White Horse Tavern, on Kings Lane to the west of Kings Parade, was a 16th-century meeting place for English Protestant reformers to discuss Lutheran ideas, when the Kings College screen was extended in 1870, the tavern was demolished. There is now a plaque in the colleges Chetwynd Court to commemorate this. Bowes & Bowes was a bookseller and publishing company located at 1 Trinity Street and it has a claim to be the oldest bookshop in the United Kingdom, with books having been sold on the site since 1581.
The Bowes & Bowes shop closed in 1986 and subsequently Sherratt & Hughes closed in 1992, when the Kings College Gatehouse and Screen were built in the 1830s, the previous west side of the street was completely demolished. Opposite Kings College is a row of now mainly touristic shops, for example, the Primavera Gallery and gift store is located here. St Marys Passage and St Edwards Passage lead away from Kings Parade to the east, No.1 Kings Parade on the corner or Kings Parade and Benet Street was a milliner & dressmaker by the name of C. H. Lawrence in the early 20th century, in the 1950s and 1960s the building became Millers Wine Parlour. In Ted Hughes, The Life of A Poet by Elaine Feinstein, Syliva Plath is described sitting in Millers Wine parlour in 1956, reading a review article. Since it has occupied various establishments including the wine bars Gough Bros and Shades, The English Teddy Bear Company, today a restaurant called The Cambridge Chop House is located here. In the 1970s, Chris Curry rented offices at 6 Kings Parade to establish Sinclair Instrument Ltd with Sir Clive Sinclair, in 1977, the company was renamed to Science of Cambridge Ltd.
The name Sinclair Research Ltd was adopted in 1981, the company was important in the home computer revolution of the early 1980s in the UK

Newnham College, Cambridge
Newnham College is a women-only constituent college of the University of Cambridge. The college was founded in 1871 by Henry Sidgwick, and was the second Cambridge college to admit women after Girton College, the co-founder of the college was Millicent Garrett Fawcett. The history of Newnham begins with the formation of the Association for Promoting the Higher Education of Women in Cambridge in 1869, the progress of women at Cambridge University owes much to the pioneering work undertaken by the philosopher Henry Sidgwick, fellow of Trinity. He persuaded Anne Jemima Clough, who had run a school in the Lake District. The following year, this moved to Merton House on Queens Road, demand continued to increase and the supporters of the enterprise formed a limited company to raise funds, lease land and build on it. In 1875 the first building for Newnham College was built on the site off Sidgwick Avenue where the college remains, in 1876 Henry Sidgwick married Elizabeth Balfour who was already a supporter of womens education.
They lived at Newnham from 1893, the college formally came into existence in 1880 with the amalgamation of the Association and the Company. Women were admitted to titles of degrees from 1881, the demand from prospective students remained buoyant and the Newnham Hall Company built steadily, providing three more halls, a laboratory and a library, in the years up to the First World War. The architect Basil Champneys was employed throughout this period and designed the buildings in the Queen Anne style to much acclaim, so Newnhams founders allowed the young women to work at and to a level which suited their attainments and abilities. Some of them, with a years preparation, did indeed go on to degree-level work. In 1890 the Newnham student Philippa Fawcett was ranked above the Senior Wrangler, by the First World War the vast majority of Newnham students were going straight into degree-level courses. In tailoring the curriculum to the students, Newnham found itself at odds with the other Cambridge college for women, emily Davies, Girtons founder, believed passionately that equality could only be expressed by women doing the same courses as the men, on the same time-table.
This meant that Girton attracted a much smaller population in its early years, in 1948 Newnham, like Girton, attained the full status of a college of the university. The university as an institution at first took no notice of these women, in 1868 Cambridges Local Examinations Board allowed women to take exams for the first time. By 1881, however, a permission to sit examinations was negotiated. Undergraduates demonstrating against the women and their supporters did hundreds of pounds worth of damage in the market square, the First World War brought a catastrophic collapse of fee income for the mens colleges and Cambridge and Oxford both sought state financial help for the first time. In Oxford this was secured in 1920 but in Cambridge the women went down to again in 1921, having to settle for the titles - the much-joked-about BA tit -. This time the male undergraduates celebrating victory over the women used a handcart as a ram to destroy the lower half of the bronze gates at Newnham
Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge
Gonville and Caius College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England. The college is the fourth-oldest college at the University of Cambridge, the college has been attended by many students who have gone on to significant accomplishment, including fourteen Nobel Prize winners, the second-most of any Oxbridge college. The college has long associations with medical teaching, especially due to its alumni physicians, John Caius. Other famous alumni in the sciences include Francis Crick, James Chadwick, Stephen Hawking, previously Cambridges Lucasian Chair of Mathematics Emeritus, is a current fellow of the college. The college maintains academic programmes in other disciplines, including economics, English literature. Gonville and Caius is said to own or have rights to much of the land in Cambridge, several streets in the city, such as Harvey Road, Glisson Road and Gresham Road, are named after alumni of the College. The college was first founded, as Gonville Hall, by Edmund Gonville, Rector of Terrington St Clement in Norfolk in 1348, when Gonville died three years later, he left a struggling institution with almost no money.
The executor of his will, William Bateman, Bishop of Norwich, stepped in and he leased himself the land close to the river to set up his own college, Trinity Hall, and renamed Gonville Hall The Hall of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Bateman appointed the first Master of the new college his former chaplain John Colton, by the sixteenth century, the college had fallen into disrepair, and in 1557 it was refounded by Royal Charter as Gonville and Caius College by the physician John Caius. John Caius was master of the college from 1559 until shortly before his death in 1573 and he provided the college with significant funds and greatly extended the buildings. During his time as Master, Caius accepted no payment but insisted on several unusual rules, Caius built a three-sided court, Caius Court, “lest the air from being confined within a narrow space should become foul”. Caius did, found the college as a centre for the study of medicine. By 1630, the college had expanded greatly, having around 25 fellows and 150 students, since the college has grown considerably and now has one of the largest undergraduate populations in the university.
The college first admitted women as fellows and students in 1979 and it now has over 110 Fellows, over 700 students and about 200 staff. Gonville and Caius is one of the wealthiest of all Cambridge colleges with net assets of £180 million in 2014, the college’s present Master, the 42nd, is Alan Fersht. The first buildings to be erected on the current site date from 1353 when Bateman built Gonville Court. The college chapel was added in 1393 with the Old Hall, most of the stone used to build the college came from Ramsey Abbey near Ramsey, Cambridgeshire. Gonville and Caius has the oldest college chapel in either Oxford or Cambridge which has been in use as such

Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge
Sidney Sussex College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge in England. The college was founded in 1596 under the terms of the will of Frances Sidney, Countess of Sussex and it was from its inception an avowedly Protestant foundation, some good and godlie moniment for the mainteynance of good learninge. In her will, Lady Sussex left the sum of £5,000 together with some plate to found a new college at Cambridge University to be called the Lady Frances Sidney Sussex College. Her executors Sir John Harington and Henry Grey, 6th Earl of Kent, supervised by Archbishop John Whitgift, as of 2014, the college had an endowment of £36. m. and total capital and reserves of £108. m. By the early 19th century, the original red brick was unfashionable. H. Lyon, and somewhat at odds with the colleges original Puritan ethos, at the beginning of the twentieth century, E. H. Griffiths wrote a ten verse song dedicated to Sidney Sussex, each verse systematically identifies, dismisses other Cambridge colleges for their faults, before settling on Sidney as the best college of all.
Sidney Sussex is recognised as one of the smaller, more classical Cambridge colleges and its current student body consists of roughly 350 undergraduate students and 190 graduates. Academically, Sidney Sussex has tended towards a position in the unofficial Tompkins Table. However, the college has traditionally excelled in subjects, notably Mathematics, Engineering. It is known for the standard of pastoral support from the Tutorial team. The college ranks fourth highest amongst Cambridge colleges in Nobel Prizes won by alumni, the Choir of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge was nominated for a 2013 Gramophone Award in recognition of their disc of the music of Thomas Weelkes. The choir tours regularly, most recently to Germany, in December 2016, in the television show University Challenge, Sidney Sussex had a winning team in both 1971 and 1978–79.

It is known for producing a well-regarded May Ball for a smaller college, students created an artificial lake and canal in 2010, when the ball had a Venetian theme, to enable punting at the landlocked college.
Recent themes have included Light, and Beyond, as with many of the smaller colleges, Sidney Sussex does not run a May Ball every year, instead running a biennial May Ball, on even numbered years. On odd numbered years, the college hosted an Arts Festival. Notable guest speakers at the Sidney Arts Festival include Stephen Fry, for 2017 it was decided instead to hold a June Event
Church of St Mary the Great, Cambridge
St Mary the Great is a Church of England parish and university church at the north end of Kings Parade in central Cambridge, England. It is known locally as Great St Marys or simply GSM to distinguish it from Little St Marys and it is one of the Greater Churches. It is designated by Historic England as a Grade I listed building, in addition to being a parish church in the Diocese of Ely, it is the university church for the University of Cambridge. As such it has a role in the universitys legislation, for example, university officers must live within 20 miles of Great St Marys. The church hosts the University Sermons and houses the University Organ, the latter chimes the Cambridge Chimes which were used by the clock tower of the Houses of Parliament. The first mention of the church is a record of King John presenting Thomas de Chimeleye to the rectory in 1205, the first church on the site of the current one was built in 1205, but this was mostly destroyed by fire 9 July 1290 and rebuilt. At the time, this fire was attributed to the Jewish population of the city, prior to 1352, it was known as The Church of St Mary the Virgin, but since that year has become known by its modern name.
During its early years, the church was the property of the crown, but on 15 July 1342, ownership passed to Trinity College, where it has rested since. The orders for the consecration of the new church were sent out on 17 May 1346, in the Middle Ages it became an official gathering place for meetings and debates for Cambridge University, but this ceased in 1730 when the Universitys Senate House was built across the street. The present building was constructed between 1478 and 1519, with the tower finished later, in 1608, the cost of construction was covered largely by Richard III and Henry VII. The church was restored by James Essex in 1766, in 1850–51 a restoration was carried out by George Gilbert Scott, followed by further work by Anthony Salvin in 1857. The south porch was rebuilt in 1888, there has been some more restoration work during the 20th century. Various leading philosophers of the English Reformation preached there, notably Erasmus, Martin Bucer, who influenced Thomas Cranmers writing of the Book of Common Prayer, was buried there.
The Tractarian movement in the 19th century prompted the removal of the north and south galleries, bells were hung in a wooden structure in the churchyard. In 1515 the bells were moved to the tower and the structure was dismantled, the bells were replaced in 1722 and in 1724, the Society of Cambridge Youths was formed to formalise the responsibility for ringing them. This society lays claim to being the oldest bellringing society in Britain, in 2009 the old ring of bells was replaced with a new ring cast by Taylors Eayre and Smith Ltd, made possible by a donation from Dr Martin C Faulkes. The new ring of 13 bells in the key of D has a tenor weighing 24cwt, some of the original bells have been retained to continue sounding the Cambridge Chimes. The University Organ was originally purchased in 1698, constructed by the organ builder Father Bernard Smith
St Catharine's College, Cambridge
St Catharine’s College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge. Founded in 1473 as Katharine Hall, it adopted its current name in 1860, the college is located in the historic city-centre of Cambridge, and lies just south of Kings College and across the street from Corpus Christi College. The college is notable for its open court that faces towards Trumpington Street, St Catharine’s is unique in being the only Oxbridge college founded by the serving head of another college. The college community is moderately sized, consisting of approximately 70 fellows,150 graduate students, as of 2013, the colleges endowment stood at £48.3 million, placing the college 18th richest of the Universitys colleges. Robert Woodlark, Provost of King’s College, had begun preparations for the founding of a new college as early as 1459 when he bought tenements on which the new college could be built. The preparation cost him a deal of his private fortune. He stipulated that they must study theology and philosophy only, the college was established as Lady Katharine Hall in 1473.
The college received its Royal Charter of Incorporation in 1475 from King Edward IV, at any rate, the college was ready for habitation and formally founded on St Catharine’s day 1473. There are six Saints Catharine, but the college was named for Saint Catharine of Alexandria, the initial foundation was not well-provided for. Woodlark was principally interested in the welfare of fellows and the college had no undergraduates at all for many years, by 1550, there was an increasing number of junior students and the focus of the college changed to that of teaching undergraduates. As the college entered the 17th century, it was one of the smallest colleges in Cambridge. However, a series of prudent Masters and generous benefactors were to change the fortunes of the college, rapid growth in the fellowship and undergraduate population made it necessary to expand the college, and short-lived additions were made in 1622. By 1630 the college began to demolish its buildings which were decaying. In 1637 the college came into possession of the George Inn on Trumpington Street, proposals for a range of buildings to complete the fourth side of the court have been made on many occasions.
The college was granted new statutes in 1860 and adopted its current name, in 1880, a movement to merge the college with King’s College began. The two colleges were adjacent and it seemed a solution to King’s need for more rooms and St Catharine’s need for a substantial financial basis. However, the Master was opposed and St Catharine’s eventually refused, in 1966 a major rebuilding project took place under the Mastership of Professor E. E. Rich. This saw the creation of a new hall, new kitchens
Act of Parliament
Acts of Parliament, called primary legislation, are statutes passed by a parliament. Act of the Oireachtas is an equivalent term used in the Republic of Ireland where the legislature is known by its Irish name. It is comparable to an Act of Congress in the United States, a draft Act of Parliament is known as a bill. In territories with a Westminster system, most bills that have any possibility of becoming law are introduced into parliament by the government. This will usually happen following the publication of a paper, setting out the issues. A bill may be introduced into parliament without formal government backing, in territories with a multicameral parliament, most bills may be first introduced in any chamber. However, certain types of legislation are required, either by convention or by law. For example, bills imposing a tax, or involving public expenditure, are introduced into the House of Commons in the United Kingdom, Canadas House of Commons, bills proposed by the Law Commission and consolidation bills traditionally start in the House of Lords.
Once introduced, a bill must go through a number of stages before it can become law, in theory, this allows the bills provisions to be debated in detail, and for amendments to the original bill to be introduced and agreed to. In bicameral parliaments, a bill that has been approved by the chamber into which it was introduced sends the bill to the other chamber, broadly speaking, each chamber must separately agree to the same version of the bill. Finally, the bill receives assent, in most territories this is merely a formality. In some countries, such as in Spain and Portugal, the term for a bill differs depending on whether it is initiated by the government, the second reading of a Government bill is usually approved. A defeat for a Government bill on this reading signifies a major loss, if the bill is read a second time, it is considered in detail Consideration in detail, This usually takes place on the floor of the House. Generally, committees sit on the floor of the House and consider the bill in detail, third reading, A debate on the final text of the bill, as amended.
Very rarely do debates occur during this stage, The bill is sent to the other House, which may amend it. If the other House amends the bill, the bill and amendments are posted back to the original House for a further stage, the State of Queenslands Parliament is unicameral and skips this and the rest of the stages. Consideration of Senate/Representatives amendments, The House in which the bill originated considers the amendments made in the other House and it may agree to them, amend them, propose other amendments in lieu, or reject them. However, the Senate may not amend money bills, though it can request the House to make amendments, a bill may pass backwards and forwards several times at this stage, as each House amends or rejects changes proposed by the other
Trinity College, Cambridge
Trinity College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge in England. With around 600 undergraduates,300 graduates, and over 180 fellows, by combined student numbers, it is second to Homerton College, Cambridge. Members of Trinity have won 32 Nobel Prizes out of the 91 won by members of Cambridge University, five Fields Medals in mathematics were won by members of the college and one Abel Prize was won. Other royal family members have studied there without obtaining degrees, including King Edward VII, King George VI, along with Christs, Kings and St Johns colleges, it has provided several of the well known members of the Apostles, an intellectual secret society. In 1848, Trinity hosted the meeting at which Cambridge undergraduates representing private schools such as Westminster drew up the first formal rules of football, Trinitys sister college in Oxford is Christ Church. Like that college, Trinity has been linked with Westminster School since the schools re-foundation in 1560, the college was founded by Henry VIII in 1546, from the merger of two existing colleges and Kings Hall.
At the time, Henry had been seizing church lands from abbeys, the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, being both religious institutions and quite rich, expected to be next in line. The King duly passed an Act of Parliament that allowed him to any college he wished. The universities used their contacts to plead with his sixth wife, the Queen persuaded her husband not to close them down, but to create a new college. The king did not want to use royal funds, so he combined two colleges and seven hostels to form Trinity. Contrary to popular belief, the lands granted by Henry VIII were not on their own sufficient to ensure Trinitys eventual rise. In its infancy Trinity had owed a great deal to its college of St Johns. Its first four Masters were educated at St Johns, and it took until around 1575 for the two colleges application numbers to draw even, a position in which they have remained since the Civil War. Bentley himself was notorious for the construction of a hugely expensive staircase in the Masters Lodge, most of the Trinitys major buildings date from the 16th and 17th centuries.
Thomas Nevile, who became Master of Trinity in 1593, rebuilt and this work included the enlargement and completion of Great Court, and the construction of Neviles Court between Great Court and the river Cam. Neviles Court was completed in the late 17th century when the Wren Library, in the 20th century, Trinity College, St Johns College and Kings College were for decades the main recruiting grounds for the Cambridge Apostles, an elite, intellectual secret society. In 2011, the John Templeton Foundation awarded Trinity Colleges Master, Trinity is the richest Oxbridge college, with a landholding alone worth £800 million. Trinity is sometimes suggested to be the second, third or fourth wealthiest landowner in the UK – after the Crown Estate, the National Trust, in 2005, Trinitys annual rental income from its properties was reported to be in excess of £20 million
Trinity Hall, Cambridge
Trinity Hall is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge, England. It is the fifth-oldest college of the university, having founded in 1350 by William Bateman. Historically, Trinity Hall was known for teaching Law, today, it teaches the sciences and this led the college to be particularly strong in legal studies, a tradition that has continued over the centuries. At first all colleges in Cambridge were known as Halls or Houses, when Henry VIII founded Trinity College, Cambridge next door, it became clear that Trinity Hall would continue being known as a Hall. This is why it is incorrect to call it Trinity Hall College, although Trinity Hall college is, strictly speaking, interestingly a similar situation existed once before in the history of the University, when Henry VI founded Kings College despite the existence of Kings Hall. Kings Hall was incorporated in the foundation of Trinity College in 1546, the chapel was licensed in 1352 and built in 1366, in the year that Pope Urban V granted the Master and Fellows permission to celebrate Mass in the college.
In 1729, Sir Nathaniel Lloyd redecorated the chapel in what, despite subsequent enlargements, remains an intimate style, the painting in the chapel is Maso da San Frianos Salutation or Visitation, depicting Marys visit to Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist. Like the chapel, the Hall of the college was rebuilt by Sir Nathaniel Lloyd and it remains one of the smallest and most intimate halls in the University. The college library was built in the sixteenth century, probably during the mastership of Thomas Preston and is now principally used for the storage of manuscripts. The new Jerwood Library overlooking the river was opened by Lord Howe in 1999, the college owns properties in the centre of Cambridge, on Bateman Street and Thompsons Lane, and on its Wychfield Site next to Fitzwilliam College. The current Master is the Revd Jeremy Morris and he took up the role on 1 October 2014 after Martin Daunton stepped down after ten years in post
