HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL 15 May


1 Decrees

Council has made the following decrees, to come into effect on 2
June.

List of the decrees:


Decree (1): Attendance at meetings of the
new Council

Explanatory note

Last term the present Council made a decree (Gazette, p.
868) reducing for members of the new Council with effect from
Michaelmas Term 2000 the minimum number of meetings which they must
attend each year. The new requirement was predicated on there being
fourteen stated meetings annually instead of the present seventeen.
In fact, however, the new Council has now held its first meeting, in
`shadow' form, and has agreed to hold only eleven stated meetings
annually (three in each term and two in the Long Vacation). Council
has accordingly made the following decree to reduce the minimum
attendance requirement proportionately, to eight of the eleven
meetings (and six of the eleven in the case of a member granted
dispensation from prescribed duties for at least one term in the year
concerned, or prevented from attendance by what, in the
Vice-Chancellor's opinion, are other good reasons).

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. II, Sect. I, § 23, cl. 1
(Statutes, 1997, p. 227, as renumbered by Decree (1) of
27 January 2000 and subsequently amended by Decree (1) of 2 March
2000, Gazette, pp. 658, 868), delete `fewer meetings
than ten' and substitute `fewer meetings than eight'.

2 Ibid., proviso (a), delete `ten
bears' and substitute `eight bears'.

3 Ibid., proviso (b) delete `at least
eight meetings' and substitute `at least six meetings'.

4 Ibid., delete `proportion to eight' and
substitute `proportion to six'.

5 Ibid., proviso (c), delete `eight
meetings less the number' and substitute `six meetings less the
number'.

6 Ibid., delete `proportion to eight' and
substitute `proportion to six'.

7 Ibid., cl. 2, delete `fewer meetings than
ten' and substitute `fewer meetings than eight'.

8 Ibid., proviso (a), delete `ten
bears' and substitute `eight bears'.

9 Ibid., proviso (b), delete `eight
meetings less the number' and substitute `six meetings less the
number'.

10 Ibid., delete `proportion to eight' and
substitute `proportion to six'.

11 This decree shall be effective from 1
October 2000.

Decree (2): Timetable for elections to
Divisional and Faculty Boards

Explanatory note

The first elections to the new Divisional Boards were held in Hilary
Term under a decree made by Council the previous term (Decree (1) of
4 November 1999, Gazette, p. 294). That legislation was
modelled on the existing timetable for elections to faculty boards
(Ch. II, Sect. VI, § 5, Statutes, 1997, p. 249),
but experience has shown that the greater complexity of the procedure
for Divisional Board elections would make it more practicable for
them to be held in accordance with the existing timetable for
elections in Congregation (Tit. II, Sect. IX, ibid., p. 16). The
principal difference between the two timetables is that six-member
nominations have to be received at least seventeen days in advance of
the date for the return of completed voting papers in the case of the
latter, as against eight days (or fourteen for elections to the
Medical Sciences [Divisional] Board or the Clinical Medicine
[Faculty] Board, the second of which will no longer exist after 30
September 2000) in the case of the former.

The following decree changes the timetable for Divisional Board
elections accordingly. Many of the existing faculty boards will
remain under the new governance structures with effect from 1 October
2000, and Council considers that there would be advantage in having
the same timetable for future elections to faculty boards as for
other elections. The following decree therefore also changes the
timetable for those elections to correspond with the others.

Text of Decree (2)

1 In Ch. II, Sect. IV, § 2, cl. 1,
concerning elections to Divisional Boards (Statutes,
1997, p. 240, as amended by Decree (1) of 4 November 1999,
Gazette, p. 294), delete `thirty-five days' notice' and
substitute `twenty-eight days' notice'.

2 Ibid., delete cll. 2--3 and substitute:

`2. No candidate shall have votes reckoned to him or her at any
election, unless he or she shall have been nominated in writing not
later than 4 p.m. on the twenty-fourth day before that fixed for the
election by two persons, other than the candidate, qualified under
the provisions of sub-section 1 of this section to vote for his or
her election, or not later than the seventeenth day before that fixed
for the election by six such persons other than the candidate.

3. All nominations, dated and signed, shall be delivered to the
Secretary of Faculties and Academic Registrar within the times above
prescribed, and in such form as shall be prescribed by the
Vice-Chancellor, and shall be published by the Secretary of Faculties
and Academic Registrar in the University Gazette as soon
as possible.'

3 Ibid., cl. 5 (1), delete `; provided that
... the election'.

4 Ibid., Sect. VI, § 5, cl. 1, concerning
elections to faculty boards (p. 249), delete `thirty-five days'
notice' and substitute `twenty-eight days' notice'.

5 Ibid., delete cll. 2--3 and substitute:

`2. No candidate shall have votes reckoned to him or her at any
election, unless he or she shall have been nominated in writing not
later than 4 p.m. on the twenty-fourth day before that fixed for the
election by two persons, other than the candidate, qualified under
the provisions of § 3, cl. 1 of this section to vote for his or
her election, or not later than the seventeenth day before that fixed
for the election by six such persons other than the candidate.

3. All nominations, dated and signed, shall be delivered to the
Secretary of Faculties and Academic Registrar within the times above
prescribed, and in such form as shall be prescribed by the
Vice-Chancellor, and shall be published by the Secretary of Faculties
and Academic Registrar in the University Gazette as soon
as possible.'

6 Ibid., cl. 5 (1), delete `; provided that
... the election'.

7 This decree shall be effective from 1
October 2000.

WELSH PRIZE 2000

SPEAKING BY JUNIOR MEMBERS IN CONGREGATION

Mr Vice-Chancellor has, with the agreement of Council, approved the following
arrangements for junior members to speak in Congregation under the terms
of Ch. I, Sect x (Statutes, 1997, p. 208), which reads as follows:

`Any junior member as defined in Tit. XIV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2, may speak
at a meeting of Congregation, if called upon to do so by the Chairman at the
Chairman's discretion, provided that the Chairman may at any time terminate
a debate on the floor of the House and proceed to the final speeches and the
taking of a vote.'

The Chairman of Congregation will normally expect to call upon nominated
representatives of the Oxford University Student Union if they wish to speak
in debate, and will normally expect to call upon junior members to speak only
from among those who have given advance notice of their wish to be called.
Should the Chairman consider that the number of junior members who have
given such notice is excessive, he or she will have to be selective in calling
upon them. The Chairman will try to ensure a balanced debate in relation to
the apparent spread and strength of views held by junior members. If
informed selection is to be possible it is desirable that when giving notice of
the wish to be called a junior member should indicate (a) whether
he or she intends to support or oppose the motion before the House,
(b) whether he or she would speak on behalf of any club, committee,
group, or association, (c) whether he or she is supported by other
junior members (up to twelve of whom might sign the notice).

If the number giving notice is small they will all be admitted to the floor
of the House although this does not ensure their being called. In other cases
some selection may be necessary at the stages of both admission and calling
of speakers. If there is to be time to tell applicants whether they will be
admitted notice will have to be received in good time. Junior members should
therefore send in such notice, in writing, to the Registrar to be received at
the University Offices not later than 10 a.m. on the Monday preceding the
debate in question. The name of any representative nominated by OUSU should
also be communicated to the Registrar, in writing, through the President by
that time. A notice will then be posted in the University Offices and on the
gate of the Clarendon Building not later than 10 a.m. on the morning of the
debate, indicating whether all applicants will be admitted to the floor of the
House or, if selection has had to take place, the names of those selected for
admission to the floor.

Junior members not admitted to the floor of the House will normally be
permitted to listen to the debate from the gallery. Junior members on the floor
of the House will be asked to remain in their places while a vote is being
taken.

Under Tit. XIV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2, junior members are defined as
`those persons who, having been admitted to matriculation, are residing to
fulfil the requirements of any statute, decree, or regulation of the University
or reading for any degree, diploma, or certificate of the University and who
have not proceeded to membership of Convocation'. (Membership of Convocation
is normally obtained by taking the MA degree.)

EXAMINATION SCHOOLS


Accommodation for Lectures

Michaelmas Term 2000

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if
Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture
at the Schools in Michaelmas Term 2000 could inform the Clerk of
the Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary to
know whether a room suitable for an audience of more than one
hundred persons is required; only the three large writing-schools
will accommodate more than that number.

Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection
equipment and 35-mm projectors are available. When these
facilities are required the Clerk of the Schools should be
notified in advance.
