HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL


1 Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into
effect on 9 August:
(1) Establishing
disciplinary and other
procedures in relation to academic and related staff


Explanatory note to Decree (1)

The following decree puts into place procedures for the
determination of disciplinary cases relating to academic and
academic-related staff of the University, for the determination
of cases arising out of alleged medical incapacity, for the
hearing of appeals, and for the consideration of grievances, in
accordance with the provisions of Parts III–VII of Title XVI
of the Statutes. The decree also includes provision for the
appointment of alternates, and for the procedures to be adopted
under Title VIII, where offences occurred before the current
statute came into effect in October 1993.

Decree (1)

In Ch. XI, delete Sect. II (Statutes, 1995, p. 695,
as amended by Decree (7) of 26 October 1995,
Gazette, p. 246) and substitute:

`Section II. Procedures of the Visitatorial Board, and other
procedures required under Title XVI to be determined by decree

§ 1. The Visitatorial Board

1. The Visitatorial Board (hereinafter called the board)
shall be constituted in accordance with Tit. VIII, Sect. I, cl.
1. Five members of the board, inclusive of the Chairman, shall
be necessary to constitute a quorum, and in a case in which the
board is evenly divided the Chairman shall have a second or
casting vote.

2. The board shall consider any reference made by the
Vice-Chancellor under Tit. XVI, cl. 14 (6) (d)
concerning a person subject to its jurisdiction, namely any
person included in the Schedule to Tit. VIII, Sect. I.

3. When the Vice-Chancellor under cl. 14 (6) (d) has
directed that a charge or charges be preferred for hearing by the
board he or she shall appoint under cl. 15 (2) a suitable person
to formulate the charge or charges and to present the said charge
or charges before the board (hereinafter called the person
presenting the case).

4. The Registrar shall act as secretary of the board or shall
appoint a person to act on his or her behalf.

5. The board may direct that charges against more than one
person shall be heard together, due regard being given to the
principles of justice and fairness.

6. The parties to a hearing by the board shall be

(a) the person or persons charged (hereinafter called
the person charged);

(b) the person presenting the case;

(c)
such other person, if any, as the board may add, either on
application or otherwise. Reference to the person charged shall
include, where the context so permits, reference to such other
person.

Any person charged shall be entitled to be represented, but
at his or her own expense, by another person, who need not be
legally qualified. Where a person charged is so represented,
references to the person charged shall include, where the context
permits, that person's representative.

PREPARATION

7. The person presenting the case shall notify the person
charged in writing that the referral has been made and shall send
to him or her a statement of the charge or charges together with
any documents therein specified.

8. The Chairman shall appoint a date, time, and place for the
hearing, but shall have power, if he or she judges this to be
advisable, to cancel a proposed hearing at any time before it has
begun and substitute alternative arrangements for the hearing.

9. The secretary of the board shall give to the person
charged at least twenty-one days' notice of the date appointed
for the hearing by the board. Such notice shall be in writing and
shall be accompanied by a copy of Title XVI and of this decree.

10. The person presenting the case shall give to the person
charged and to the secretary of the board at least fourteen days
before the hearing date a list of the witnesses to be called in
support of the charges, statements of the evidence that the
witnesses are expected to give, and copies of documents to be
submitted in support of the charges.

11. The person charged shall give to the person presenting the
case and to the secretary of the board at least seven days before
the hearing date a list of the witnesses that he or she intends
to call, statements of the evidence that the witnesses are
expected to give, and copies of any documents to be submitted at
the hearing.

HEARING

12. Subject to the prior consent of the board, either party
may
introduce witnesses or documents notwithstanding the fact that
the appropriate provisions in clauses 10 and 11 above have not
been observed, but in that event the hearing may be adjourned to
enable the other party to consider the proposed testimony or
further evidence and to introduce further evidence in support of
its response.

13. No charge shall be determined without an oral hearing at
which the person charged is entitled to be present.

14. All hearings of or in connection with proceedings before
the
board shall take place in camera.

15. The board may proceed with a hearing in the absence of any
of the persons entitled to be present, except where, in the case
of the person charged, the board is of the opinion that the
person's absence was due to circumstances beyond his or her
control. The Chairman of the board may exclude any person from
a hearing if in the opinion of the Chairman such exclusion is
necessary for the maintenance of order.

16. Each of the parties to the proceedings shall be entitled to
give evidence at the hearing, to make an opening statement, to
call witnesses, and to question any witness concerning any
relevant evidence. After all the evidence has been heard, the
person presenting the case, and the person charged, in that
order, may address the board.

17. The board may dismiss a charge for want of prosecution.

18. The board may remit any charge to the Vice-Chancellor for
further consideration.

19. (a) The jurisdiction and powers of the board shall
not be affected by the fact that the person charged has been, or
is liable to be, prosecuted, but has not yet been convicted, in
a court of law in respect of any act or conduct which is the
subject of proceedings before the board; but the board shall
consider the advisability of referring the matter to the police.
In the event that the matter has been referred to the police, by
the board or otherwise, the board shall adjourn the proceedings
for such periods as the board judges to be reasonable to enable
a prosecution to be undertaken.

(b) Evidence that a person has been convicted of any
offence by or before any court of law, or that any court of law
has found proved an offence with which a person was charged,
shall, for the purpose of proving that the person committed that
offence or was guilty of any act or conduct in respect of which
he or she was so convicted or charged, be admissible in any
proceedings before the board.

20. Subject to the provisions of Title XVI and of this decree,
the board shall determine its own procedure and may make such
interlocutory orders for the conduct of the proceedings as it
considers appropriate. The Chairman may set time limits for each
stage of the proceedings, to the intent that any charge shall be
heard and determined by the board as expeditiously as is
reasonably practicable consonantly with the principles of justice
and fairness. Within the limits of that intent, any meeting of
the board may nevertheless be postponed or adjourned at the
discretion of the Chairman.

21. The secretary of the board shall be entitled to be present
throughout the hearing and at any meeting of the board, and shall
keep a sufficient record of the proceedings of the board.

22. No costs shall be awardable by the board to parties to the
proceedings.

DETERMINATION

23. In deciding whether a charge has been proved, the board shall
apply the civil standard of proof, i.e. the balance of
probabilities.

24. If the board decides that a charge has been proved, it shall,
after giving the parties to the proceedings or their respective
representatives an opportunity to address it concerning the
penalty to be imposed, determine its recommendations, if any, as
to the appropriate penalty in accordance with the provisions of
Tit. XVI, cl. 19.

25. The board's decision shall be recorded in a document signed
by the Chairman which shall also contain:

(a) the board's findings of fact regarding the charge

or charges;

(b) the reasons for the board's decision; and

(c) the board's recommendations, if any, as to the
appropriate penalty or penalties.

The secretary of the board shall ensure that a copy of the
document is sent to the Vice-Chancellor, to the person presenting
the case, and to the person charged, and also that a copy of Part
V of Title XVI and of the associated procedural decree
accompanies the document sent to the person charged.

26. The Chairman of the board may, by an appropriate certificate
in writing, correct any accidental errors in documents recording
the decisions of the board.

§ 2. Medical Boards

1. When a Medical Board is appointed to determine a case
referred to it under Tit. XVI, cl. 22 (3), the appropriate
officer for the purposes of Part IV of that statute shall appoint
a person to present the case to the board.

2. The Registrar shall act as secretary of the board or shall
appoint a person to act on his or her behalf.

3. If after the commencement of proceedings a member of a
board ceases to be available to serve as a member, the
appropriate officer shall discharge the board and a new board
shall be appointed in accordance with the provisions of Tit. XVI,
cl. 22 (3).

4. The parties to a hearing before a board shall be:

(a) the person whose retirement on medical grounds
is to be considered by the board, hereinafter referred to as the
person concerned, which term shall include any person authorised
to act on behalf of the person concerned, in addition to (or
instead of) the person concerned, in accordance with Tit. XVI,
cl. 21 (4);

(b) the person presenting the case.

5. The person concerned shall be entitled, but at his or her
own expense, to be represented by another person, who need not
be legally qualified, in connection with and at any hearing by
the board.

PREPARATION

6. The person presenting the case shall notify the person
concerned in writing that a referral has been made.

7. The Chairman of the board shall appoint a date, time, and
place for a hearing by the board, but shall have power, if he or
she judges this to be advisable, to cancel a proposed hearing at
any time before it has begun and substitute alternative
arrangements for the hearing.

8. The secretary of the board shall give to the person
concerned at least twenty-one days' notice of the date appointed
for the hearing by the board. Such notice shall be in writing and
shall be accompanied by a copy of Title XVI and of this decree.

9. The person presenting the case shall give to the person
concerned and to the secretary of the board at least fourteen
days before the hearing date a written statement of the case
together with copies of any relevant medical and other evidence,
copies of any other documents intended to be produced at the
hearing, a list of the witnesses whom it is proposed to call, and
statements of the evidence that they are expected to give.

10. The person concerned shall give to the secretary of the
board at least seven days before the hearing copies of any
medical evidence that he or she intends to produce, a list of the
witnesses that he or she intends to call, and statements of the
evidence that they are expected to give.

HEARING

11. Subject to the prior consent of the board, either party may
introduce witnesses or documents notwithstanding the fact that
the appropriate provisions in clauses 9 and 10 above have not
been observed, but in that event the hearing may be adjourned at
the request of either party to enable the other party to consider
the proposed testimony or further evidence in support of its
response.

12. A case shall not be determined without an oral hearing at
which the person concerned is entitled to be present. Any hearing
of or in connection with any case before a Medical Board shall
take place in camera.

13. The board may proceed with a hearing in the absence of any
of the persons entitled to be present, except where, in the case
of the person concerned, the board is of the opinion that his or
her absence was due to circumstances beyond his or her control.
The Chairman of the board may exclude any person from a hearing
if in the opinion of the Chairman such exclusion is necessary for
the maintenance of order.

14. Each party to a hearing before a board shall be entitled to
give evidence at the hearing and, either personally or through
a representative, to make an opening statement, to call
witnesses, to question any witness concerning any relevant
evidence, and to address the board after the evidence has been
heard. 15. Subject to the provisions of Title XVI and of this
decree, a Medical Board shall determine its own procedures and
may make such interlocutory orders for the conduct of the
proceedings as it considers appropriate. The Chairman of the
board may set time limits for each stage of the proceedings, to
the intent that the case shall be heard and determined by the
board as expeditiously as is reasonably practicable consonantly
with the principles of justice and fairness. Within the limits
of that intent, any meeting of a board may nevertheless be
postponed or adjourned at the discretion of the Chairman.

DETERMINATION

16. A Medical Board shall not determine that any person to whom
Title XVI applies shall be required to retire on medical grounds
unless it is satisfied that the person's physical or mental
incapacity has been established, and it shall apply the civil
standard of proof, i.e the balance of probabilities, in so
satisfying itself.

17. The secretary of the board shall be entitled to be present
throughout the hearing and at any meeting of the board, and shall
keep a sufficient record of the proceedings of the board.

The secretary of the board shall ensure that a copy of the
document is sent to the person concerned, to his or her
representative (if any), to the person responsible for presenting
the case to the board, and to the Vice-Chancellor, and also that
a copy of Part V of Title XVI and of the associated procedural
decree accompanies the copy of the document sent to the person
concerned.

19. The Chairman of the board may, by an appropriate certificate
in writing, correct any accidental errors in documents recording
the decisions of the board.

§ 3. Appeals

1. The procedure to be followed in respect of the
preparation, consolidation, hearing, and determination of appeals
under the provisions of Title XVI, cll. 24-30 shall be as
follows.

2. The person appointed under ibid., cl. 28 (1) to hear and
determine this appeal shall be referred to hereinafter as the

be referred to hereinafter as the Appeal Body, which term shall
also refer to the Chairman in the event that the Chairman sits
alone.

3. The Registrar shall act as secretary in the Appeal Body
or shall appoint a person to act on his or her behalf.

4. The parties to an appeal shall be

(a) the appellant;

(b) such person as the Vice-Chancellor has appointed
to act as respondent in the proceedings;

(c) such other person, if any, as the Chairman may
add, either on application or otherwise.

5. Any party to an appeal shall be entitled, but at his or
her own expense, to be represented by another person, who need
not be legally qualified, in connection with and at the hearing
of the appeal.

PREPARATION

6. The Chairman shall appoint a date, time, and place for the
hearing of the appeal, but shall have power, if he or she judges
this to be advisable, to cancel a proposed hearing at any time
before it has begun and substitute alternative arrangements for
the hearing.

7. When a hearing has been arranged, the secretary of the
Appeal Body shall send to each party, at least fourteen days
before the date appointed for the hearing,

(a) notice of the hearing, together with information
on the right of representation by another person, on attendance,
on the right to produce documents, and on the calling of fresh
evidence; and

(b) a copy of the notice provided by the appellant
in accordance with Tit. XVI, cl. 26.

8. The Appeal Body may at any time make such interlocutory
orders for the conduct of the proceedings as it considers
appropriate, and it shall have power, on application by the
appellant, to suspend, in whole or in part, the operation of
penalties pending the determination of the appeal.

HEARING

9. An appeal shall not be determined without an oral hearing
at which the appellant and his or her representative, if any, are
entitled to be present, save as is provided in clause 11 below.
Subject to the provisions of clause 10 below, any hearing of or
in connection with an appeal shall take place in camera.

10. If it considers it appropriate to do so, the Appeal Body
may hear appeals by two or more appellants at the same hearing.

11. The Appeal Body may proceed with a hearing in the absence of
any of the persons entitled to be present, except where, in the
case of the appellant, it is of the opinion that that person's
absence was due to circumstances beyond his or her control. The
Chairman may exclude any person from a hearing if in the opinion
of the Chairman such exclusion is necessary for the maintenance
of order.

12. Each party to a hearing shall be entitled to make
a statement and to address the Appeal Body, but witnesses may not
be called without the consent of the Appeal Body. Leave to adduce
fresh evidence, or to recall witnesses examined at first
instance, shall be given only if the Appeal Body is satisfied
that it is necessary or expedient in the interests of justice.

13. Subject to the provisions of Title XVI and of this decree,
the Appeal Body shall determine its own procedure. The Chairman
may set time limits for each stage of the proceedings, to the
intent that any appeal shall be heard and determined as
expeditiously as is reasonably practicable consonantly with the
principles of justice and fairness. Within the limits of that
intent, any meeting of the Appeal Body may nevertheless be
postponed or adjourned at the discretion of the Chairman.

DETERMINATION

14. The Appeal Body may allow or dismiss an appeal in whole or
in part, may dismiss an appeal for want of prosecution, or may
remit an appeal for further consideration in accordance with the
provisions of Tit. XVI, cl. 29 (3) and, in the case of an appeal
arising under Part III of that Title, may substitute any lesser
alternative penalty available under cl. 19 (2) thereof following
a finding by the Visitatorial Board on the original charge or
charges.

15. The secretary of the Appeal Body shall be entitled to be
present throughout the hearing and at any meeting of the Appeal
Body, and shall keep a sufficient record of the proceedings.

16. The decision of the Appeal Body shall be recorded in a
document, signed by the Chairman, and including:

document to the Vice-Chancellor (or to the Chancellor, where the
appeal is against a decision reached under Part VII of Title
XVI), the appellant, and the other parties to the appeal.

17. The Chairman may, by an appropriate certificate in writing,
correct any accidental errors in documents recording the
decisions of the Appeal Body.

§ 4. Grievance Committee

1. When reference has been made to the Grievance Committee
under Tit. XVI, cl. 34 the chairman of the committee shall invite
the aggrieved person, and any person against whom the grievance
lies, to submit a written statement to the committee. 2. The
grievance shall not be disposed of without an oral hearing at
which the aggrieved person, and any person against whom the
grievance lies, shall be entitled to be heard and to be
accompanied by a friend or representative.

3. After due consideration, the Grievance Committee shall
inform Council whether in its opinion the grievance is or is not
well founded. If of the opinion that the grievance is justified,
the committee shall at the same time make such proposals for the
redress of the grievance as it thinks fit.

§ 5. Appointment of alternates

1. Where any person, including the holder of any specified
office of the University, is designated to perform any duties or
exercise any power under Title XVI, and that person is, for the
purposes of clause 7 (3) of that Title, involved in the matter
or matters in question, the Vice-Chancellor may, either on
application or of his or her own motion, appoint an alternate to
act in that person's place.

2. No appointment under clause 1 above shall be effective
unless it is made in writing, and a copy is delivered to the
Registrar or, if the latter is involved in the matter or matters
in question, to a Deputy Registrar. The Registrar or Deputy
Registrar (as the case may be) shall ensure that notice of the
appointment is given as soon as practicable to any other persons
or bodies involved.

3. When the person referred to in clause 1 above is the
Vice-Chancellor, the appointment under that clause shall be made
by the Chancellor.

§ 6. Procedure under Tit. VIII, Sect. I, cll. 8–17

1. The meetings of the Visitatorial Board for the purpose of
an inquiry under Tit. VIII, Sect. I, cl. 8 shall be held at such
times and for such periods as may be convenient between the hours
of 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.

2. All documents circulated or distributed in connection with
any such inquiry shall be marked `Confidential' and shall be
addressed to members of the board, and any other persons
concerned, under sealed cover.

3. When notice is given under Tit. VIII, Sect. I, cl. 10 to
the person concerned, the latter shall also be informed that
under clause 11 of that section he or she has the right
(a) to appear before the board to make his or her
defence and (b) to be represented.

4. On the day fixed for the opening of the inquiry, the board
may adjourn the inquiry if in its opinion such adjournment is
necessary in order to enable the person concerned properly to
prepare his or her defence, and for the same purpose the inquiry
may be adjourned again for a further period or further periods;
provided always that

(a) no one period of adjournment shall exceed
twenty-one days; and

(b) if the person concerned fails to appear before
the board on the day fixed for the resumption of the hearing, the
board may (unless in its opinion that person's failure to appear
was due to circumstances beyond his or her control) proceed with
the hearing in that person's absence.

5. The board shall in every case cause statements of the
evidence, sufficient to indicate its substance, to be supplied
to the person concerned as promptly as may be possible; provided
that it shall be at the discretion of the board to determine the
form in which the statements, if they are not full transcripts,
are presented.

6. The decision of the board shall be communicated in writing
to the person concerned.'

ACADEMIC AND ACADEMIC-RELATED
SALARIES

Council has agreed that the following letter, sent to the
Prime Minister by the Vice-Chancellor of the University
of Liverpool in his capacity as Chairman of the
Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA)
should be published for the information of members of
Congregation and others concerned. As will be seen, the
letter addresses in particular the problems for
universities of implementing in the case of their
clinical academic staff the recent salary award approved
for equivalent staff in the National Health Service, but
also refers to the increasingly disadvantageous salary
position of non-clinical academic and academic- related
staff in universities.

26 June 1996

UCEA is responsible for conducting pay negotiations on
behalf of universities and colleges in the UK. Its Board
met a few days ago to consider the results of a
consultation with the institutions about the level of pay
settlements which could be afforded. It concluded that
pay increases would have to be, at most, 1.5 per cent.
This is almost 1 per cent below the rate of inflation at
1 April 1996 which is the operative date for most of our
agreements.

This very low level of increase is a direct
consequence of the decision by the Government to make a 1
per cent cut in cash terms in the recurrent funding for
higher education in 1996-7.

A salary increase of only 1.5 per cent is extremely
poor reward for university and college staffs who have
contributed so much to the greatly increased productivity
of higher education institutions over the last five
years. Moreover, it will be the second consecutive year
in which pay increases have fallen 1 per cent below the
rate of inflation. What is more, even this very poor
salary increase can only be afforded by significantly
reducing staff numbers yet again.

It follows a long period during which university
salaries and wages have increased in value to a much
lesser extent than elsewhere in the private or public
sectors. Indeed, there is no part of the public sector in
which relative salaries have declined so markedly. (There
is a Treasury Occasional Paper [No. 3] which confirms
this.)

An organisation which tracks pay increases (Income
Data Services) reports that of 1,121 settlements in the
year to 1 April 1996 only 17 were below 2.0 per cent so
that, at 1.5 per cent, universities and colleges will be
substantially out of line with pay increases in the rest
of the economy.

The Government has approved substantially larger pay
increases for staff groups where pay is determined by
independent pay review bodies. Two of these are of
particular relevance to pay in higher education. The pay
of school teachers is to be increased by 2.75 per cent
from April and a further 1 per cent from 1 December.

Doctors and dentists who are consultants in the NHS
are to have increases of 3.8 per cent and junior medical
and dental staff pay is to rise by 5.3 per cent to 6.8
per cent. Doctors, dentists and other healthcare
professionals are trained mainly in the research
environment of university teaching hospitals. Those who
undertake this teaching, training and research are the
2,900 clinical academic staff of universities who are
themselves qualified doctors and dentists. They also
provide a high proportion of patient treatment in these
hospitals.

Since 1979 the basic pay of these clinical academic
staff has been closely linked to the pay of their
counterparts in the NHS. This has been done for the
obvious reason that, if offered lower remuneration, such
staff would seek appointments in the NHS rather than in
universities. Pay in the NHS has risen much faster than
pay in universities as demonstrated in the attached
graph. Therefore, throughout much of this period the
Government has ensured that universities have been in a
position to meet the financial cost of matching pay in
the NHS.

Without such assistance universities will have no
choice but to increase the pay of clinical academics this
year by the same unsatisfactory 1.5 per cent as for other
staffs. The financial assistance required amounts to
£4.8m.

We know, from past experience, that a shortfall in
clinical academic salaries relative to NHS colleagues
results in a very rapid drying up of recruits into
academic medicine and dentistry with immediate effects on
training, research and the treatment of patients.

I hope that the Government will ensure that
universities can continue to match pay in the NHS for its
relevant staff. And I hope too that you will recognise
the serious prospects for non-clinical pay in
universities, which really must be addressed and which
cannot be left to await the outcome of the Dearing
Inquiry.
