1 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 51; see also the Vice-Chancellor's Notice, p. 506 above. The Governing Body of Emmanuel College have approved a comprehensive revision of the Statutes of the College; this includes the removal of gender-specific language and of a number of obsolete provisions. The Statute governing the Dixie Professorship of Ecclesiastical History is a Statute for the University and Emmanuel College in common, appearing in the University Statutes as Statute E, XXXIV and in the College Statutes as Statute LX. The revised College Statutes include an amended version of this Statute, and to preserve the correspondence between the College Statute and the University Statute the Council now propose an amendment of the latter.

3 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 679. It is proposed to make provision for the appointment of a member of the Regent House to act as deputy when a University officer who is ex officio an Examiner, Adjudicator, Elector, or Manager in respect of a Trust Fund is on leave.
