HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL

1 Decree

Decree (1): Committee for Disabled People

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Committee for Disabled People, revises the composition of the committee in the light of experience of its business over recent years. It replaces one of the two persons currently appointed by Council with the Assessor, ex officio; one of the two persons appointed by the Staff Committee with a person appointed by the Association of College Nurses; and the two persons appointed by the Conference of Colleges with one person appointed by the Senior Tutors' Committee and one by the Committee of Tutors for Graduates. It also adds a further member to be appointed by the Libraries Committee (as currently discharging the functions of the Libraries Board). At the same time opportunity is taken to substitute a reference to the Joint Undergraduate Admissions Committee for a reference to the Management Committee for the Oxford Colleges Admissions Office, which the former body has superseded.
