On the occasion of the Congregation on Wednesday, 24 June, for conferment of the titles of Honorary Degrees, the Vice-Chancellor requests that the University flag be flown until dusk from University buildings having flagpoles. He further requests that flags be flown on Saturday, 4 July, on the occasion of the commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the first admission of women to degrees in the Senate-House.
He also requests, in accordance with Regulation 3 for Academical Dress (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 181), that Doctors in the several Faculties wear their festal gowns in public on 24 June and 4 July.
