CONGREGATION 20 May 2 p.m.

¶ Members of Congregation are reminded that written notice of any intention to vote against, or any proposed amendment to, the resolution below, signed by at least two members of Congregation, must be given to the Registrar by noon on Monday, 12 May (see the Guide to Procedures in Congregation cited in the note at the end of `University Agenda').

Voting on Resolution approving the conferment of a Degree by Diploma

Explanatory note

By longstanding tradition, the University has conferred by diploma upon the Chancellor-elect the Degree of Doctor of Civil Law (unless, of course, the Chancellor-elect already holds that degree, otherwise than honoris causa).

Council is in no doubt that it would be appropriate to continue this tradition and accordingly seeks the approval of Congregation for the following resolution.

Text of Resolution

That the conferment of the Degree of Doctor of Civil Law by Diploma upon THE RT. HON. CHRISTOPHER FRANCIS PATTEN, CH, PC, MA, Honorary Fellow of Balliol College, Chancellor-elect of the University, be approved.

¶ If the resolution is approved, the degree will be conferred as part of the ceremony on 25 June to admit Mr Patten to the office of Chancellor.
