Committee on Statutes before the Privy Council

Amendments to the Statutes of Wadham 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 Statutes XV and XVII of Wadham College as approved by the Governing Body on 28 November 2007, 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 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, 3 March. The effect of the amendments is to provide for the adoption of a policy of 'total return' in relation to the investment of trust funds.
