    ENTITLEMENT OF MEMBERS OF FACULTIES AND
    EMERITUS PROFESSORS TO MEMBERSHIP OF CONGREGATION

    The text of Tit. XIV, Sect. III, cll. 1--2, as amended by Statute
    (2) which will be declared approved on 29 April (see `University
    Agenda' above), and which will restore the entitlement of all
    members of faculties to membership of Congregation, is set out
    below, together with associated legislation (Tit. II, Sect. II,
    cl. 1, concerning the composition of Congregation; Tit. VI,
    Sect. I, cl. 2, concerning membership of faculties; and Ch. I,
    Sect. IX, cl. 1, concerning membership of Congregation, including
    membership for Emeritus Professors), for ease of reference.

    Tit. II, Sect. II, cl. 1 still begins with the proviso,
    introduced by the changes made in 1995–6, `Subject to such
    limit on membership [viz. of Congregation] by reason of
    retirement or age as may be prescribed by Congregation by
    statute'. This is because that proviso could be deleted only with
    the approval of Her Majesty in Council, and the Hebdomadal
    Council considers that it would be somewhat embarrassing for the
    University to ask Her Majesty to approve the deletion of a phrase
    the insertion of which she approved only a year ago. The proviso,
    though left in place, will be of no effect unless and until
    Congregation were to approve the reimposition of an age limit on
    membership of Congregation.
