Grace 3 of 15 June 2011: result of ballot

25 July 2011

A postal ballot was held between 14 July and 25 July 2011 on the following Grace of the Regent House:

3. That, in the light of sweeping cuts to the HE budget, the trebling of tuition fees, and incoherent access policies, all decided on without adequate consultation, the University shall communicate to HM Government, by June 24, 2011 or as soon as possible thereafter, that it has no confidence in the policies of the Minister of State for Universities and Science, and that this duty be delegated to the Council.

The results of the voting on this Grace are as follows:

In favour of the Grace (placet)


Against the Grace (non placet)


Under the regulations for Graces if there is an equality of votes the Grace is deemed not to be approved (Regulation 14, Statutes and Ordinances, p. 109).

This Grace is therefore not approved.

Approval of Graces submitted to the Regent House on 13 July 2011

All the Graces submitted to the Regent House on 13 July 2011 (Reporter, 2010–11, pp. 1004–6) were approved at 4 p.m. on Friday, 22 July 2011.
