GENERAL PURPOSES COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Changes in Regulations

The General Purposes Committee of Council has made the following changes in regulations, to come into effect on 21 February.

(a) Establishment of Julia Bodmer Memorial Lecture Fund

In Part 2 of Council Regulations 25 of 2002 (Statutes, 2000, p. 602, as redesignated as regulations by Decree (5) of 11 July 2002, and renumbered by the changes published on 14 November 2002, Gazette, Vol. 132, p. 1461; Vol. 133, p. 404), insert new § 28 as follows and renumber existing §§ 28--37 (pp. 602--6, as renumbered by Decree (2) of 12 July 2001, Decree (5) of 8 November 2001, and the changes in regulations published on 16 January 2003, Gazette, Vol. 131, p. 1240; Vol. 132, p. 375; Vol. 133, p. 612) as §§ 29--38:

`§ 28. Julia Bodmer Memorial Lecture Fund

1. The fund derived from donations in memory of Julia, Lady Bodmer shall be known as the Julia Bodmer Memorial Lecture Fund (`the Fund').

2. The University shall retain the Fund as permanent endowment and shall apply the net income in support of visiting lectures in science and medicine, which either are given by or describe the achievement of someone who has moved successfully from one discipline to another, achieving eminence in the new field, and thereby enhancing his or her contribution to the development of human knowledge.

3. The administration of the Fund and the application of its income shall be the responsibility of a board of management comprising:

(1) the Vice-Chancellor, or a person appointed by the Vice-Chancellor to act as chairman;

(2)--(4) the Heads of the Divisions of Life and Environmental Sciences, Mathematical and Physical Sciences, and Medical Sciences, or their nominees;

(5)–(6) two persons appointed by Council, whose period of office shall be four years.

4. Regulation 3 above may be amended by Council.' [This change, made on the recommendation of the Life and Environmental Sciences Board, establishes a new trust fund in memory of Julia, Lady Bodmer. The University has received with gratitude a generous benefaction to support visiting lectures in science and medicine, which either are given by or describe the achievement of someone who has changed field significantly and who has achieved eminence in his or her new field. It seeks to recognise the contribution that can be made by those who dare to make an intellectual leap.]

(b) Wildlife Conservation and Research Fund

1 In the title of § 373 of Part 2 of Council Regulations 25 of 2002 (Statutes, 2000, p. 746, as redesignated as regulations by Decree (5) of 11 July 2002, and amended by the changes published on 14 November 2002, Gazette, Vol. 132, p. 1461; Vol. 133, p. 404), delete `Wildlife Conservation and Research Fund' and substitute `Wildlife Conservation Research Fund'.

2 Ibid., regulation 1, after `The benefaction from the Trustees of the Tubney Charitable Trust' insert `and from Second Titan Limited as the Trustee of the Miles Blackwell No. 2 Trust'.

3 Ibid., after `Wildlife Conservation' delete `and'.

[These changes correct the title of the trust fund established last term from a benefaction given by the Trustees of the Tubney Charitable Trust, and add to the existing regulations express reference to a second trust, from which part of the assets constituting the benefaction have been provided. (The condition relating to planning consent for a change in the use of Tubney House, to which the original regulations were subject, has now been satisfied.)]
