CONGREGATION 18 January 2 p.m.

2 Promulgation of Statute

Statute: Nomination of Delegates of the University Press

Explanatory note

There is currently a special committee, appointed by Council and the General Board, for the nomination of the Delegates of the University Press. Under the new governance structures which are due to come into effect next Michaelmas Term, the consideration of most appointments by the new Council to committees and other bodies will become the responsibility of its General Purposes Committee. The Nominating Committee has therefore proposed, and Council and the Board have agreed, that it be discharged and that in future nominations of delegates be made by means of recommendations by the General Purposes Committee to the new Council. The following statute provides accordingly.

WHEREAS it is expedient to change the arrangements for the nomination of Delegates of the University Press, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

1 In Tit. VIII, Sect. II, cl. 2 (6)-(22) (Statutes, 1997, p. 56), delete `and the General Board ... below'.

2 Ibid., cl. 4, delete `Council and the General Board shall appoint ... (e) Council and the General Board' and substitute `Council'.

3 Ibid., cl. 5 (p. 57), delete `and the General Board'.

4 This statute shall be effective from the same date as the Statute approved by Congregation on 29 June 1999, subject to the approval of Her Majesty in Council, concerning new governance structures for the University (Gazette, Vol. 129, pp. 1323, 1482).
