Report of the Council on amendments of certain Statutes: Notice

2 March 1998

The Council have considered the remarks made at the Discussion of this Report on 17 February 1998 (Reporter, p. 441), and have agreed to comment as follows:

Dr Evans suggested that Statute K, 5, which provides machinery for the investigation of alleged breaches of the Statutes or Ordinances of the University, is unsatisfactory in its present form. The Council are in agreement with this view; they believe the experience of the past year has shown that the Statute is in urgent need of revision. They intend to review the operation of the Statute in the near future, and to consider possible ways of improving the machinery that it provides for dealing with allegations of irregular conduct. In the meantime, they are anxious not to delay the proposals of the present Report, which they believe to be uncontroversial; although these are to a large extent concerned only with questions of drafting, they also include measures of some importance for the conduct of University business. The Council are therefore submitting a Grace to the Regent House (Grace 3, p. 463) for the approval of the recommendations of their Report.
