1 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 156. The Secretary of State for Education and Employment has recently announced that fees for home and EC postgraduate students are to be increased by 2.75 per cent for 1998-99. An increase of 4.75 per cent (i.e. 2 per cent above the level of inflation) is proposed for overseas students, in line with the policy set out in the Council's Notice of 12 May 1997 (Reporter, 1996-97, p. 691). Proposals for fees for home and EC undergraduate students will be brought forward in due course. The opportunity has been taken to introduce amendments relating to a number of recent changes in postgraduate courses.

2 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 204. The need to amend this date, which relates to the submission of the second batch of examination entries, arises from new requirements of the Higher Education Funding Council for England, whereby a return of each student's full-time-equivalent load by subject is required by 1 December. Complete examination entries are needed to enable this return to be made. The General Board, the Board of Examinations, and the Senior Tutors' Committee have been consulted and offer no objection.

3 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 207. See the General Board's Notice relating to the Manufacturing Engineering Tripos, p. 611.

4 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 752. This Prize was established in 1987 by Mr Neville Brown in memory of Sir Walter Langdon-Brown, his uncle. Mr Brown died in 1995; at the instance of his personal representatives it is now proposed to widen the scope of the Prize so as to include other subjects in which Sir Walter had a particular interest.
