Explanatory note to Decree (1)

The University of Cambridge has recently introduced the Degree of Master of Natural Sciences (M.Sci.) in certain subjects. In parallel to the Degree of Master of Engineering of each university, the new degree will be equivalent in the relevant subjects to the Oxford Degrees of M.Biochem., M.Chem., and M.Phys. except that holders of the Cambridge M.Eng. or M.Sci. receive in addition the Cambridge BA, and can proceed to the Cambridge MA. The following decree provides for the incorporation of the Cambridge M.Sci. as the Oxford M.Biochem., M.Chem., or M.Phys. in appropriate cases, while precluding the incorporation in addition of the Cambridge BA or MA. This corresponds with the existing treatment of the Cambridge M.Eng. To avoid a need for subsequent legislation, the decree also provides for incorporation to the Oxford M.Math., although it is not currently possible to qualify for the Cambridge M.Sci. in Mathematics.

Explanatory note to Decree (4)

The following decree removes anomalies and makes consequential amendments to existing decrees which have been overlooked in recent legislation, and other minor amendments.

Decree (4)

1 In Ch. III, Sect. XXXV, cl. 4 (1), concerning the Environmental Change Unit (Statutes, 1995, p. 290), and Ch. VII, Sect. III, § 64, cl. 1 (2), concerning the Reader in Educational Studies (p. 401, as amended by Decree (3) of 18 January 1996, Gazette, p. 582), in each case delete `to which' and substitute `with which'; and delete `allocated' and substitute `associated'.

[These changes convert the existing formulation to that normally used in connection with directorships and readerships, whereby they are described as `associated with' rather than `allocated to' a college, the latter phrase normally being reserved for professorships.]

2 In Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 7, SCHEDULE IV, concerning special allowances to certain Heads of Departments (p. 372), after `Head of the Department of Statistics' insert: `Principal Curator of the University Museum'.

[The Principal Curator was inadvertently omitted from the list of those in receipt of a Schedule IV departmental allowance.]

3 The provisions of Decree (4) of 7 December 1995, concerning the Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies (Gazette, p. 467), are hereby rescinded.

4 In Examination Decrees, 1995, p. 1054, after l. 15 insert new item (b) as follows and reletter existing item (b) (l. 16) as item (c):

`(b) for members of the University working for the Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies, £250.'

[Clauses 3 and 4 above correct the provision for the composition fee of £250 for 1995-6 for the course concerned, which was originally, through inadvertence, incorrectly included amongst the fees collected through the candidates' societies; the diploma course is open to non-members of the University.]

5 Clauses 1 and 2 of this decree shall have immediate effect; clauses 3 and 4 shall be effective from 22 December 1995.

Explanatory note to Decree (5)

The gates to the University Parks have locks which are of an obsolete pattern and which will shortly need to be replaced. Owing to the presence of the Marston–Oxford cycle track and footpath on the south side of the Parks, there is now a pedestrian way between South Parks Road and Ferry Road, Marston, open twenty-four hours a day, except on 1 January and 25 December of each year.

In these circumstances, the Curators of the University Parks will no longer be issuing keys to the gates of the University Parks to members of the University.

In reaching this decision, the curators have been influenced by a number of factors:

(1) It is impossible to make the Parks' boundaries totally secure from illegal entry, and the curators do not have the resources to enable them to protect legitimate key-holders when the Parks are closed.

(2) It has been the habit of some key-holders to admit non-key- holders after the gates have been locked. This leads to those admitted being unable to get out without either climbing out (and, on occasion, causing damage while doing so) or calling out the Superintendent to open a gate.

(3) Regrettably, some key-holders have removed padlocks from those gates to which fixed locks cannot be fitted. This is a continuing problem which results in costs in the region of £300 per annum.

(4) Closure of the Parks to all persons after sunset will make the effective protection of buildings and equipment by the University Security Service more practicable.

The curators intend to give advance notice of the date on which the obsolete locks will be changed. From that date the persons to whom the curators have issued keys may return them and have any deposit refunded.

Council has endorsed the curators' intentions and has agreed to make the following decree, which deletes the clause prescribing that keys to the Parks may be supplied to Senior Members of the University.

Decree (5)

In Ch. III, Sect. LXXXIII (Statutes, 1995, p. 329), delete cl. 4.

Decree (6)

In Ch. IX, Sect. I (Statutes, 1995, p. 664), insert new § 347 as follows and renumber existing §§ 347–8 as §§ 348–9:

`§ 347. Truelove Lecturership Fund

1. The University accepts with gratitude from Dr Sidney Truelove the sum of £7,500 to establish a fund to be known as the Dr Sidney Truelove Lecturership Fund, the income from which shall be used to fund a special lecture in the Oxford Postgraduate Gastroenterology Course. If the course shall cease, the capital sum and any unspent income shall be transferred to the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine Ulcerative Colitis Research Fund under the provisions of § 249 of this section.

2. The Board of the Faculty of Clinical Medicine shall be the Board of Management of the Dr Sidney Truelove Lecturership Fund.

3. Such proportion of the income as shall be determined from time to time by the Clinical Medicine Board shall be used to fund the Dr Sidney Truelove Lecture to be given in the Oxford Postgraduate Gastroenterology Course.

4. Income not expended in any year shall, at the discretion of the Clinical Medicine Board, either be accumulated to increase the sum available from time to time for the lecture, or be added to the capital of the fund for so long as that shall be permissible in Law.

5. Council shall have power to alter this decree from time to time, provided that the main object of the benefaction, as stated in clause 1 above, is always kept in view.'

Explanatory note to Decree (7)

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the General Board, deletes the provisions governing the status of Service Student.

Cl. 3 deletes a provision which has been superseded by the prohibition effected by cl. 4 of the existing decree.

Cl. 4 gives unambiguous legislative form to a principle expressed in the explanatory note to the legislation introducing the first of the Master's degrees (M.Eng.) awarded for an undergraduate course, namely that such degrees are awarded in place of the BA.

Explanatory note to Decree (15)

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Literae Humaniores and Modern Languages Boards and with the concurrence of the General Board, provides for there to be two moderators responsible for both Latin and Greek in the Preliminary Examination for Modern Languages. This replaces the existing provision for two moderators for Latin, and one to act if required for Greek (in practice, normally one of the two for Latin also acts in Greek). Now that it has been agreed to include both Latin and Greek in the same papers, it is simpler to make both moderators responsible for both languages. Similarly, there is already provision for there to be two moderators responsible for Classics in Honour Moderations in Classics and English.

Explanatory note to Decree (21)

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Clinical Medicine Board and with the concurrence of the General Board, changes the arrangements for holding elections to the Clinical Medicine Board in Trinity Term 1996 by varying the timetable for the making of nominations and for the return of ballot papers in order to allow longer for the latter to occur. The conventional date for holding faculty board elections in Trinity Term (Thursday of week 6) has become increasingly unsatisfactory for the Faculty of Clinical Medicine as the circulation of ballot papers almost always coincides with the late Spring Bank Holiday weekend, when Oxford hospitals take both the Monday and the Tuesday as holiday. Many ballot papers as a result do not reach members of the faculty, distributed as these members are across all Oxford hospitals, until it is too late to return them in time for the election day. In any case, even if the elections did not coincide with a bank holiday, the normal timetable is not satisfactory for a faculty which is geographically so widely spread. As an experimental measure in 1995 Mr Vice-Chancellor agreed that the date of the elections should be the Friday of week 7 (9 June). However, there was no need for a ballot in 1995, and so it is proposed to extend the trial to Trinity Term 1996. Mr Vice-Chancellor has agreed under the provisions of Ch. II, Sect. VI, § 5, cl. 1 (Statutes, 1995, p. 235) that the date of the elections shall again be Friday of week 7 (7 June), and the following decree makes changes to the dates for receiving nomination papers and circulating ballot papers. If the experiment achieves its desired objective of ensuring that all members of the faculty can take part in the election, permanent changes in legislation will be proposed.

Decree (21)

Notwithstanding the provisions of Ch. II, Sect. VI, § 5, cll. 2 and 5 (1) (Statutes, 1995, p. 235), the timetable for the elections to the Board of the Faculty of Clinical Medicine in Trinity Term 1996 shall be varied so that nominations of candidates by six members of the faculty shall be made fourteen clear days before the day fixed for the election and voting papers shall be sent out not later than the eighth day before the election day.

Promulgation of Statutes

Explanatory note to Statute (1)

The following statute permits surplus income also to be spent for the furtherance of teaching and research in one or more of the areas in which Mr Lyell was interested. Meanwhile, Decree (22) in `University Acts' above permits the Lyell Electors to appoint a second Lyell Reader for the academic year 1996–7.
