2 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 885. The regulations for the Prize have been amended to take account of changes in Part III of the Final Veterinary Examination.

3 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 221. The General Board have recommended a revision of the title 'Principal External Examiner' following consideration of the duties of persons appointed to this post; the Board consider that the term 'Moderating External Examiner' would more accurately reflect the role of the appointment. The Board have also recommended, in the light of experience, that it would be appropriate to allow for the award of supplementary payments to Examiners and Assessors, in light of their particular duties. Such payments would be considered on a case-by-case basis, on the advice of the nominating body for the examination concerned. Any person who is ineligible to receive a payment in respect of examination duties would be ineligible for supplementary payments in respect of these duties.

4 See the Council's Notice, p. 711.

to the New York Public Library, for the exhibition 'The Newtonian Moment' from 8 October 2004 to 5 February 2005, twenty-eight manuscripts from the Library's Newton collections and one printed book, an annotated copy of Isaac Newton, Philosophiæ naturalis principia mathematica.
