    resources available to support it; (c) the resources
    available to support the work of the faculty; and (d) the
    organisation of the faculty and the conduct of its administration and

    The committee would welcome the comments of any interested

    Applied Social Studies and Social Research. Its terms of reference
    are:

    (a) to consider the responsibilities and activities of

    goals with respect to the teaching of social work, social policy, and
    sociology, and the balance of teaching between these subjects), and
    research;

    (b) to consider whether the department could be used more
    effectively to promote study and research in the sociological
    subjects in the University;

    (c)to review staffing, finances, resources and
    facilities, and organisation, management, and administration (both
    the effectiveness of the current structures and possible

    technical review group on the use of video-conferencing technology in
    teaching and research.

    interest in any applications which provide a channel for human
    interaction (including sharing of applications, shared whiteboards,
    etc.).

    CIRCULATION OF FLYSHEETS

    Ten or more members of Congregation may arrange to have a flysheet
    circulated with the Gazette (a) on matters
    before Congregation, or Convocation in regard to the election of the
    Professor of Poetry, or (b) relating to matters of general
    interest to the University, subject to the following general
    conditions:

    (i) no flysheet will be circulated which in the opinion of the
    Vice-Chancellor and Proctors might be defamatory or otherwise
    illegal;

    (ii) the right is reserved on behalf of the University and its
    employees, without prior consultation with the signatories, to
    publish an apology in respect of any statement in a flysheet which is
    complained of as defamatory or otherwise illegal (whether or not the
    statement can be shown to be true);

    (iii) the signatories shall
    jointly and severally indemnify the University and its employees
    against any costs or damages payable in respect of their flysheet
    and, unless a Queen's Counsel (to be mutually agreed on by the
    signatories and the University) shall advise within four months of
    the making of any claim in respect of a flysheet that any proceedings
    could be contested with the probability of success, such damages
    shall include any sum paid by the University in settlement of any
    claim arising out of the flysheet;

    (iv) the flysheet shall consist of one leaf only (though text
    may appear on both sides of the leaf); the text shall include the
    name and college or department of each of the signatories;

    (v) a copy of the text of the flysheet shall be delivered to the

    Registrar before 10 a.m. on the Monday of the week in which
    circulation is desired; it shall be accompanied by an indemnity in
    accordance with condition (iii) above drawn up on a form obtainable
    from the Registrar and signed by each of the signatories of the
    flysheet; the Registrar shall be informed at the same time which of
    the signatories is to be notified whether the Vice-Chancellor and
    Proctors have authorised circulation;

    (vi) the Registrar shall arrange for the production by the
    University Press of copies of a flysheet the circulation of which has
    been duly authorised.

    Though every effort will be made to circulate on the day
    desired flysheets so received, it must be understood that this cannot
    be guaranteed.

    (a) Matters before Congregation or Convocation

    If the flysheet deals with a matter that is a formal agendum for
    Congregation, or for Convocation in regard to the election of the
    Professor of Poetry, or the subject of a report published in the
    Gazette, the production costs will be met from
    university funds.

    (b) Matters of general interest to the University

    If the flysheet deals with a matter that is not a formal agendum for
    Congregation or the subject of a report published in the
    Gazette, the Vice-Chancellor will decide whether it is
    of sufficient general interest to warrant circulation with the
    Gazette; the production costs for such a flysheet will
    be the responsibility of the signatories.

    Oxford University Student Union and Oxford University Graduate
    Union

    The Executive of the Oxford University Student Union and the
    Executive of the Oxford University Graduate Union may have flysheets
    circulated with the Gazette under the arrangements and
    subject to the conditions set out above, provided that:

    (1) the number of names to be included on the flysheet under
    condition (iv) shall be not less than a majority of the total number
    of members of the Executive of OUSU or of the Executive of OUGU, as
    the case may be, and each of the persons named shall sign the
    indemnity required under condition (v);

    (2) the maximum number of flysheets to be circulated as of
    right, whether on matters before Congregation (to be paid for by the
    University) or on matters of general interest to the University (to
    be paid for by OUSU or OUGU, as the case may be, and to be subject to
    the Vice-Chancellor's decision as prescribed under (b)
    above) shall be three per term for each of these bodies, save that
    the Vice-Chancellor shall have discretion to permit further
    flysheets.

    Subject to proviso (1) above, the Executive of OUSU and the
    Executive of OUGU may also support flysheets signed by not less than
    ten members of Congregation.
