HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL 28 February


1 Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 17
March.


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

Explanatory note

Under the changes in governance structures approved by Congregation
on 29 June 1999 (Gazette, Vol. 129, pp. 1323, 1482), the
present Hebdomadal Council will be replaced by the new Council of the
University with effect from the beginning of Michaelmas Term 2000. It
is envisaged that, subject to review in the light of experience, the
new Council will normally meet only fourteen times a year, rather
than seventeen as the present Council does. This means that it is
appropriate to reduce the minimum number of meetings each year which
the elected (and in future also nominated and co-opted) members must
attend if they are to retain their place for the following year
(unless, of course, their current period of office ends in any case).
The following decree accordingly reduces the minimum number from
twelve meetings to ten, and from ten to eight for a member of Council
who has been dispensed from university or college duties for at least
one term in the year concerned or who has been absent for other good
reason.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. II, Sect. I, § 23
(Statutes, 1997, p. 227, as renumbered by Decree (1) of
27 January 2000, Gazette, p. 658), delete `If an elected
member of Council' and substitute `1. If a member of Council elected
under the provisions of Tit. IV, Sect. II, cl. 1 (6), (12)–(14),
or (17)–(23), or co-opted under the provisions of cl. 1, para. 2
of that section,'.

2 Ibid., delete `fewer meetings than twelve'
and substitute `fewer meetings than ten'.

3 Ibid., provisos (a), (b),
and (c), in each case after `person elected' insert `or
co-opted'.

4 Ibid., proviso (a) (twice), after
`election' insert `or co-optation'.

5 Ibid., delete `twelve' and substitute `ten'.

6 Ibid., provisos (b) and
(c), in each case delete `ten meetings' and substitute
`eight meetings'.

7 Ibid., in each case delete `proportion to
ten' and substitute `proportion to eight'.

8 Ibid., insert cl. 2:

`12. If a member of Council nominated under the provisions of Tit. V,
Sect. II, cl. 1 (7), (8) shall have attended fewer meetings than ten
less the number of any meetings which have been cancelled in the
course of any academic year, his or her seat shall at the close of
such year be declared by the Vice-Chancellor to be vacant and shall
thereupon be vacated; provided always

(a) that a person nominated to fill a casual vacancy
shall only be required to attend the same proportion of meetings due
to be held subsequent to the date of the approval by Congregation of
his or her nomination as ten bears the total number of meetings due
to be held in the academic year, any fraction being reckoned to the
nearest unit, and the resulting number then being reduced by the
number of any meetings cancelled which were due to be held subsequent
to the date of such approval;

(b) that such a member may, at the discretion of the
Vice-Chancellor, be deemed to have satisfied the requirements of this
sub-section if in any year he or she has attended, but for good
reason has been prevented from attending more than, eight meetings
less than the number of any meetings which have been cancelled, or in
the case of a person nominated to fill a casual vacancy has attended,
but for good reason has been prevented from attending more than, such
less number as shall have been calculated in proportion to eight by
the method (mutatis mutandis) prescribed in proviso
(a) above.'

9 This decree shall be effective from 1
October 2000.

    VIOLET VAUGHAN MORGAN PRIZES 2000

    The Board of the Faculty of English Language and Literature gives notice that
    eight prizes on the foundation of Mr and Mrs P. Vaughan Morgan will be
    awarded in Trinity Term 2000 if suitable candidates present themselves.

    The examination will be open to members of the University who are citizens
    of one of the countries of the British Commonwealth, have not exceeded the
    ninth term from their matriculation, and are reading for the First or Second
    Public Examination. In awarding a prize, in addition to scholastic acquirements,
    the characters of the candidates will be taken into consideration so far as
    they can be judged from a viva-voce examination and also from their records
    at college, and a prize will not be awarded to anyone who, in the opinion of
    the examiners, does not show promise of becoming a loyal citizen of the British
    Commonwealth.

    The examination (consisting of two papers on English Literature) will be held
    in the Schools on Thursday, 18 May 2000, at 9.30 a.m. and 2.30 p.m. Viva-voce
    examinations will be held in the Schools on Thursday, 25 May, beginning at
    9.30 a.m. The examiners intend to set two papers (each of three hours); one
    composed of general critical questions requiring no special preparation; the
    other composed of three sections, (1) fourteenth- and fifteenth-century poetry
    and drama, (2) drama 1580–1642, (3) Victorian poetry, of which candidates
    must limit themselves to answering questions in one section.

    The prizes are of the value of £120 each. Each prize-winner will also
    receive a bronze medal having on one side a profile of Maude Violet Caroline
    Vaughan Morgan, and on the other side an engraved statement of the origin
    of the prizes.

    Persons wishing to become candidates must apply to the Head Clerk,
    University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, for a form of entry
    which will include a certificate (to be signed by the head or senior tutor of
    the candidate's college or society) stating that the candidate has not exceeded
    the ninth term from matriculation, is reading for the First or Second Public
    Examination, and is a citizen of one of the countries of the British
    Commonwealth. The completed entry forms must be returned to the Head Clerk
    by Friday, 17 March 2000, and must be accompanied by a confidential letter
    of recommendation in a sealed envelope from each candidate's tutor. The
    attention of tutors is drawn to the second paragraph of this notice and to the
    need to comment explicitly on non-scholastic (as well as scholastic)
    acquirements.

    WINTER WILLIAMS LAW PRIZES 2000

    The Board of the Faculty of Law invites entries for the Prizes which will be
    awarded in 2000 on the basis of essays, of not more than 5,000 words,
    submitted on one of the following subjects:

    1. To what extent should trustees have freedom to delegate their functions?

    2. Is it consistent to hold a negligent tortfeasor liable not only for
    reasonably foreseeable types of inflictions of harm, but also for an
    unforeseeable extent of harm? Discuss with reference to at least two of the
    following heads: (i) personal injuries; (ii) nervous shock; (iii) personal
    property damage; and (iv) damage to land.

    3. Is it useful—or even possible—to distinguish primary from
    secondary liabilities arising from contractual obligation?

    4. How convincing is the argument that the intention of Parliament provides
    the justification for judicial review of administrative action in England?

    The First Prize is of £400, the Second Prize of £200. Grants to a
    total of £200 may be made to unsuccessful candidates who have done
    meritorious work. The prizes will be awarded only if entries of sufficient merit
    are received.

    The essays (two typed copies) must be sent to the Head Clerk, University
    Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, by 30 September 2000. There is no
    entry form, but each essay must accompanied by: (i) a statement from the
    candidate's college that he or she is, on 30 September 2000, an undergraduate
    member of the University who has not exceeded the tenth term from
    matriculation, and is reading for the Honour School of Jurisprudence; (ii) a
    declaration that the essay is entirely the candidate's own unaided work and
    that it has been submitted to any other person for advice, assistance, or
    revision.

    CLUBS COMMITTEE


    Annual Report 1998--9

    The Clubs Committee has continued to provide support and assistance for the
    wide range of student clubs, societies, and publications which choose to
    register with the Proctors in accordance with Rules Committee regulations. As
    in previous years, this support has been directed mainly towards non-sports
    organisations, since sports clubs and teams have been able to look to the
    Committee for Sport and Senior Treasurers' Committee (and will now look to
    the Sports Strategy Committee). However, sports clubs had equal access to the
    Clubs Committee services and facilities at 13 Bevington Road, as well as access
    to the Minibus Hire Scheme which is run by the Clubs Committee in
    collaboration with the Committee for Sport. During 1998--9, approximately 140
    non-sports clubs and eighty-five sports clubs were registered with the
    Proctors.

    In addition to its grant of £12,663 from the Committee for the Council
    Departments in 1998--9, the Clubs Committee received £13,224 from
    colleges and other societies. Income of £4,153 was obtained from
    secretarial services (mainly photocopying) and rents at the Bevington Road
    premises. The funds available to the committee supported its activities in the
    following areas, consistent with usual practice and approved plans:

    Staffing support. The committee funds two clerical posts at
    its premises at 13 Bevington Road. The part-time Clubs Committee Secretary
    works in ten- week blocks associated with Full Term. In addition to providing
    secretarial services on request to student clubs and societies, the Secretary
    helps with the day-to-day running of the Bevington Road premises and deals
    with the clubs' termly reregistration exercise. The second post at 13 Bevington
    Road, that of Clubs Officer, is filled on a part-time basis throughout the year.
    The duties mainly involve processing and advising on the termly accounts
    which student treasurers are required to submit as part of the registration
    exercise, administering the Minibus Hire Scheme, and providing `wardenship'
    for the Clubs Committee premises which otherwise would be unstaffed during
    the vacations.

    Clubs Committee premises. In addition the Clubs Committee's
    administrative offices, the premises at 13 Bevington Road provide rooms and
    storage-space made available for clubs and societies to rent at competitive
    rates. Some fifteen organisations made use of these facilities, which are
    particularly important for organisations like charities and publications that
    rely on having a long-term base from which to operate. Improvements were
    made to the premises by sealing in the side porch area to provide an internal
    toilet and extra storage facility.

    Non-premises support costs. These mainly comprise the
    running costs for the Clubs Committee Office, including the photocopying
    service which is available cheaply to registered clubs and societies.

    Direct financial support. The Clubs Committee continued to
    operate its scheme of grants, loans, and underwriting guarantees, allocated in
    termly exercises by the Clubs Subcommittee (up to £300) and by the main
    committee. Although £6K was budgeted in 1998--9 for this purpose, net
    expenditure (exclusive of repaid loans) was £2,365. The committee
    surveyed clubs' views on the kind of support which they would find helpful,
    and identified a number of areas (including improved communications,
    meeting-room facilities) where initiatives could be taken. Start-up grants
    (£100 maximum) to help newly registered clubs to become established are
    particularly important

    Minibus Hire Scheme. During the fourth year of operation
    this important safety scheme provided an element of driver
    assessment/training and gave clubs access to economical, good-quality vehicles
    hired from a local company. Prices to clubs were kept low because vehicles
    are hired on the University's insurance. The driver assessment/training
    sessions were given by professionals, attendance by student drivers was
    voluntary, but clubs and societies which used certified drivers for their
    minibuses could reclaim part of the hire fee from the Clubs Committee
    (attendance has subsequently been made compulsory). The scheme continued
    to prove particularly popular with sports clubs and teams, which accounted
    for 60 per cent of the total annual hires. The committee is pleased to report
    that there were again no minibus accidents involving personal injury during
    the year.

    The committee's expenditure in 1998--9 was £7.7K less than income.
    Added to the accumulated balance on its account, this produced a total of
    £22,575 to carry forward to 1999--2000.

    Under the Assessor's chairmanship, the committee and its Clubs Subcommittee
    each met once a term. A small management committee for the 13 Bevington Road
    premises also met twice. The Clubs Committee is especially grateful for the
    enthusiasm and contribution made by the student members in determining how
    best to support the clubs, societies, and publications which are such an
    important part of university life.
