HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL


1 Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 11
February.


Decree (1): Composition and terms of
reference of main new Council committees

Explanatory note

In consequence of the approval by Congregation on 29 June 1999 of the
statute setting up the University's new governance structures from
Michaelmas Term 2000, Council has made the following decree
determining the composition and terms of reference of the four main
new Council committees, as required by the new Tit. IV, Sect. III,
cl. 2 (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4513, 2 June 1999,
p. 1327). This is generally as set out in sections 3.3--3.6 of the
annexe to the Second Report of the Joint Working Party on Governance
(Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4506, 24 March 1999, p.
973), which were endorsed by a very substantial majority after the
debate in Congregation on 11 May.

Three changes are now proposed. The first is that both the
Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic Services) and the Pro-Vice-Chancellor
(Planning and Resource Allocation) should be ex officio
members of the Planning and Resource Allocation Committee. It seems
self-evidently desirable for the holder of the new
Pro-Vice-Chancellorship with special responsibility for planning and
resource allocation to be a member (and vice-chairman) of the
committee; Council also considers that the holder of the new
Pro-Vice-Chancellorship with special responsibility for academic
services, who will oversee a major area and a substantial budget,
should always be a member in the same way as the heads of division
are.

Secondly, the intention that there should be two junior member
representatives (one of undergraduates and one of graduate students),
elected by OUSU, on the Educational Policy and Standards Committee
was clearly stated in para. 36 of the second report. Unfortunately,
however, reference to this was inadvertently omitted from the annexe
to the second report, which was what was formally endorsed by
Congregation on 11 May. The decree rectifies this omission.

Thirdly, the Conference of Colleges is currently considering
proposals to create an Academic Subcommittee and a Finance and
General Purposes Committee. In anticipation of the Conference's final
approval of these proposals, the decree specifies the chairman of the
former as the Conference's representative on the Educational Policy
and Standards Committee and the Personnel Committee, and the latter
as its representative on the Planning and Resource Allocation
Committee, in place of the Chairmen of the Senior Tutors' Committee
and of the Estates Bursars' Committee respectively as originally
proposed by the joint working party.

The following decree provides accordingly. It also provides for the
abolition of certain existing committees whose functions will be
taken over by the new bodies.

As the decree departs in the above respects from the detailed
composition of these four new committees which was formally endorsed
by Congregation last Trinity Term, Council wishes specifically to
draw the attention of members of Congregation to the procedure
whereby it is open to twelve or more members to submit to the
Registrar in writing by noon on Monday, 7 February,
a general resolution calling upon Council to amend this decree.
Further details of the procedure may be found in the Guide to
Procedures in Congregation cited in the note at the end of
`University Agenda' below.

Further changes in the existing decrees governing the committees of
Council and the joint committees of Council and the General Board are
currently under consideration and will be made in due course.

    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.

    Return to List of Contents of this section


    (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

    The Executive and the Graduate Committee of the Oxford University Student
    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 or the Graduate Committee of OUSU, 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 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 and the Graduate Committee
    of OUSU may also support flysheets signed by not less than ten members of
    Congregation.

    Master-classes

    Master-classes are of outstanding interest to anyone concerned with making
    or listening to music, whether as a performer or a listener. The format is of
    coaching in front of an audience. Those coached are chamber groups or
    performing soloists, without restriction of the instrument to whoever is giving
    the class, and without restriction to members of the college. Each group
    receives about forty minutes of tuition. The atmosphere is informal.

    There is no charge for performers or for audience. Potential performers are
    invited to apply to the College Secretary.
