The full code as amended will be printed in the Statutes and Ordinances 2003 and in the Students' Handbook 2003-04.

Requirement 3 (c) Opting Out.

'Payments should normally continue to be made by College student unions to CUSU or the Graduate Union as the case may be in relation to any student who has opted out of membership.'

Requirements 3 (m) Complaints Procedures for Students and 3 (n) Remedies

'If the Junior Proctor believes that he or she cannot properly act independently in a particular case he or she will be delegate the matter to another Proctor or Pro-Proctor, as provided for in the University regulations.'

In 3 (n), by replacing

'Compliance with the remedies (if any) imposed as a result of inquiries undertaken under paragraph (n) is a condition of University grant to the unions.'

With

'University regulations for the unions require any remedy confirmed after an investigation under 3(m) to be executed by the union without delay. The union is required to notify the Secretary of the Student Matters Committee confirming that the remedy has been implemented. Compliance with these remedies is a condition of University grant to the unions. If a remedy is not implemented, the matter will be referred to the Student Matters Committee so that abatement or termination of University grant, or other measures, can be considered.'
