GENERAL PURPOSES COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decree

The General Purposes Committee of Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 22 December.

Decree (2): Publication of the list of Council's permanent committees

Explanatory note

Under Tit. IV, Sect. III, cl. 5 (Statutes, 2000, p. 36), Council is required to publish annually in the Gazette in Michaelmas Term a complete list of all its permanent committees, with the names of their chairmen (and vice-chairmen where appropriate) and other members. (A similar requirement applied, under the old governance structures, to the permanent committees of the General Board.) A list of the members of the new Council and its four main committees, together with lists of the members of each of the five new Divisional Boards and of the members of the Standing Committee of the Conference of Colleges and its two main subcommittees, was published earlier this term as Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4561, 18 October 2000, pp. 163-72. A complete list of the members of Council's permanent committees will shortly be available on the University's internal web-site (at http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/oxonly/gov). It is also published annually, together with lists of the members of the other permanent committees and other bodies of the University, in the University Calendar.

In these circumstances, Council's General Purposes Committee thinks that the requirement also to publish the list annually in the Gazette is no longer appropriate, and has accordingly made the following decree suspending the requirement until further notice.

Text of Decree (2)

Notwithstanding the provisions of Tit. IV, Sect. III, cl. 5 (Statutes, 2000, p. 36), Council shall not be required to publish annually in the Gazette a complete list of all its permanent committees, provided that such information is made available to members of Congregation by electronic or other means.
