effect on 15 August.

section



Decree (1): Fee payable for late
entry for admission to a degree

Explanatory note

Council has reviewed the level of the fee payable for
late entry for admission to a degree, and to maintain it
at its real value, in the same way as the majority of
other fees of this kind (see Decree
(11) below), has made the following decree increasing the
fee to £15.50 with effect from 1 September 1997;
this represents the same increase (in round terms) as
that in overall costs, as recorded in the Higher
Education Pay and Prices Index, over the previous year.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. I, Sect. I, § 1, cl. 2
(b) (Statutes, 1995, p. 175, as
amended by Decree (1) of 25 April 1996,
Gazette, Vol. 126, p. 992), delete
`£15.00' and substitute `£15.50'.

2 In Examination
Decrees
, 1996, p. 1059, l. 12, delete `15.00' and
substitute `15.50'.

from 1 September 1997.

Decree (2): Absorption of the
Academic Computing Services Committee into the IT
Committee and reconstitution of the IT Committee

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
General Board's Review Committee for the Computing
Services and with the concurrence of the General Board,
has two purposes. First, it abolishes the Academic
Computing Services Committee as a separate statutory
entity and transfers that committee's responsibilities to
the IT Committee. This is in order that responsibility
for implementing the agreed IT Strategy (including
determining the proper balance between distributed and
local support) shall rest solely with the IT
Committee.

Secondly, it changes the composition of the IT
Committee, principally to provide for more of the
committee's members to be appointed by bodies below the
General Board and Council. The decree provides for the
representatives of the sciences to be chosen by the
Committee of Heads of Science Departments and the
representative of Clinical Medicine to be chosen by the
Board of that Faculty. In the short term the
representatives of the humanities and social sciences
will continue to be appointed by the General Board, but
this will change when the new arrangements for the
strategic oversight of the Humanities Computing Unit
(HCU) have been put in place; it is envisaged that the
Steering Group for the HCU will then be responsible for
appointing the two representatives to the IT Committee.
The separate provision for the representation of `staff
with professional, technological knowledge of the field
of IT' has been discontinued, on the basis that the
committee will gain access to the expertise it needs
through its subcommittees. This allows for more direct
subject representation and for an external member,
without increasing the overall size of the committee. The
committee's present powers of co-optation have been
expanded to give it increased flexibility.

Text of Decree (2)

1 In Ch. II, Sect. II, § 5
(Statutes, 1995, p. 218), delete cl. 1 and
substitute:

`1. The Information Technology (IT) Committee shall

Decree (3): Establishment of a
Department of Chemistry

Explanatory note

In the light of the recommendations of the General
Board's Review Committee for Chemistry, which reported in
May 1996, the new position of Chairman of Chemistry was
established by decree in Hilary Term
1997 (Decree (8) of 20 March 1997, Gazette,
p. 884), and Professor W.G. Richards was appointed to the
post until 30 September 2000 in the first instance. The
decree stipulated that the chairman should be responsible
for bringing forward proposals for implementing the
unification of the three existing Chemistry departments
and establishing a Chemistry Management Committee on the
lines proposed in the review committee's report.

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
General Board, gives effect to proposals that have been
endorsed successively by the Inter-departmental Committee
for Chemistry (which will be replaced with the new
Chemistry Management Committee), the Sub-faculty of
Chemistry, and the Physical Sciences Board.

The form of the legislation is comparable with that
establishing a unitary Department of Physics and confines
itself to the major features of the new structure, namely
the relationship between the Chairman of Physics, the
heads of the three sub-departments, and the Chemistry
Management Committee. The full proposals endorsed by the
General Board and the other relevant bodies contain
details of the arrangements for other committees within
the new department, and other administrative matters
which may be governed by standing order as
appropriate.

The legislation protects the vested interests of the
present Waynflete Professor of Chemistry in retaining the
headship of the Sub-department of Organic Chemistry.

Text of Decree (3)

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
Theology Board and with the concurrence of the General
Board, amends the legislation governing the Supervisory
Committee for the Bachelor of Theology and the
Certificates in Theology. In the earlier revision of the
legislation governing these courses the clauses
concerning the supervisory committee were not inserted in
the most appropriate places in the revised legislation,
and did not accurately describe its powers. The following
decree rectifies these anomalies.

Decree (11): Fees (other than composition
fees)
payable by candidates for examinations

Explanatory note

Council and the General Board have reviewed the level of
various fees payable by candidates for examinations and
have agreed that they should in general be increased by
2.5 per cent (the overall increase recorded in the Higher
Education Pay and Prices Index), normally rounded to the
nearest pound, with effect from 1 September 1997 in order
to take account of increases in examining and related
costs. Resubmission fees for the M.Litt., M.Th., M.Sc.,
D.Phil., and Diploma in Law, which rose to £100 in
1996, are being held at this new level for the
foreseeable future. The following decree provides
