9 July 2018

The Vice-Chancellor begs leave to refer to his Notice of 7 June 2018 (Reporter, 6510, 2017–18, p. 690), concerning proposed amending Statutes for Magdalene College. He hereby gives notice that in the opinion of the Council the proposed Statutes make no alteration of any Statute which affects the University, and do not require the consent of the University; that the interests of the University are not prejudiced by them, and that the Council has resolved to take no action upon them, provided that the Council will wish to reconsider the proposed Statutes if they have not been submitted to the Privy Council by 9 July 2019.
