PLANNING AND RESOURCE ALLOCATION COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Changes in Regulations

The Planning and Resource Allocation Committee of Council has made the following changes in regulations, to come into effect on 13 December.

(a) Electoral Board for the Nissan Professorship of Modern Japanese Studies

In regulation 2 of Sect. III, § 151 of Council Regulations 24 of 2002, concerning the Nissan Professorship of Modern Japanese Studies (Statutes, 2000, p. 445, as amended by Decree (1) of 21 February 2002, and subsequently redesignated as regulations by Decree (5) of 11 July 2002, Gazette, Vol. 132, pp. 810, 1461), delete `The members of the electoral board shall always include at least one from each of the Divisions of Humanities, Life and Environmental Sciences, and Social Sciences.' and substitute:

`The appointments to the electoral board shall be determined after consultation with the Humanities, the Life and Environmental Sciences, and the Social Sciences Boards.'
