Board of Scrutiny: Notice

12 January 1998

The Vice-Chancellor gives notice of an election of a member of the Board of Scrutiny in class (c)(ii), to serve until 30 September 1999 in place of Ms D. Lowther, who has vacated her place on the Board on being elected a member of the Finance Committee of the Council. Class (c)(ii) consists of members of the Regent House chosen without limit of age (subject to certain exclusions; see Statute A, VII, 4 (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 10)).

 In order to be eligible, a candidate must be nominated on a paper sent to the Vice-Chancellor at the Old Schools so as to reach him not later than noon on Tuesday, 3 February 1998. The paper must contain (a) a statement signed by two members of the Regent House, nominating the candidate for election, (b) a statement signed by the candidate certifying that he or she consents to be so nominated, and (c) a curriculum vitae (see below).

 The Vice-Chancellor would be obliged if nominations could be delivered direct to the Registrary's Clerk in the Old Schools during office hours.

 The Vice-Chancellor will publish nominations as they are received. The complete list of nominations will be published in the Reporter on Wednesday, 11 February.

 Regulation 3 of the regulations for the election of members of the Council (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 118) applies also to the Board of Scrutiny. Under this regulation each person nominated for election is required to send to the Registrary, not later than noon on Tuesday, 3 February, a statement of his or her curriculum vitae for distribution to members of the Regent House with the voting papers. It is suggested that such a statement should be of not more than 500 words in length, and that it should cover the following points:

 Voting papers will be distributed, together with the statements provided by candidates, not later than Friday, 13 February. The last date for the return of voting papers will be Monday, 23 February.

 Regulation 2 for the election of members of the Board of Scrutiny (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 120) provides that, if at the election insufficient nominations are received to fill all the places in either class (c)(i) or class (c)(ii), the Council shall appoint as many members as may be necessary.
