Notice of proposed consent to amendments to the Statutes of Queen's College

The Committee on Statutes before the Privy Council, acting under authority delegated to it by Council, is minded to give consent on behalf of the University to the amendments to Statute XXIII of Queen's College and to the Scheme made by the college under the Universities and Colleges (Trusts) Act, 1943, as approved by the Governing Body on 21 June 2003, in so far as such consent is required by Section 7 (2) of the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge Act, 1923. This consent will be effective eleven days after publication of this notice unless written notice of a resolution, signed by at least twenty members of Congregation, calling upon Council to withhold that consent, has been given to the Registrar by noon on Monday, 18 October.

The effects of the amendments are to provide for the adoption of a policy of Total Return on investments and to provide for the provision of certain rights to benefactors.
