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 11 February.

Harmsworth Professor of American History

Explanatory Note

The following change amends the composition of the electoral board of the Harmsworth Professor of American History, by increasing the number of members appointed by the History Faculty from one to two, to reflect the academic importance of this visiting professorship to the Faculty. It also replaces reference to 'decrees' with reference to 'regulations' and removes reference to the General Board.

In Sect. III of Council Regulations 24 of 2002, concerning individual professorships (Statutes, 2000, p. 432, as redesignated as regulations by Decree (5) of 11 July 2002, Gazette, Vol. 132, p. 1461), in § 119 delete existing regulations 4 and 5 and substitute:

(2) the Ambassador from the United States of America to the Court of St James at the time of election, or a deputy appointed by the Ambassador to act from time to time;

(3) a person appointed by Council;

(4) Viscount Rothermere for his life, and thereafter each successive holder of the Viscountcy or an elector appointed by him as his representative at the election; but if the Viscountcy should have become extinct or the holder thereof be a minor or otherwise disqualified from acting as an elector or appointing a representative, then the Lord Chief Justice of England shall be the fourth elector;

(5), (6) two persons appointed by the governing body of the college to which the professorship shall be for the time being allocated by Council under any regulation in that behalf;
