SPEAKING BY JUNIOR MEMBERS IN
CONGREGATION

Mr Vice-Chancellor has, with the agreement of Council,
approved the following arrangements for junior members to
speak in Congregation under the terms of Ch. I, Sect x
(Statutes, 1997, p. 208), which reads as
follows:

`Any junior member as defined in Tit. XIV, Sect. iv,
1, cl. 2, may speak at a meeting of Congregation, if
called upon to do so by the Chairman at the Chairman's
discretion, provided that the Chairman may at any time
terminate a debate on the floor of the House and proceed
to the final speeches and the taking of a vote.'

The Chairman of Congregation will normally expect to call
upon nominated representatives of the Oxford University
Student Union if they wish to speak in debate, and will
normally expect to call upon junior members to speak only
from among those who have given advance notice of their
wish to be called. Should the Chairman consider that the
number of junior members who have given such notice is
excessive, he or she will have to be selective in calling
upon them. The Chairman will try to ensure a balanced
debate in relation to the apparent spread and strength of
views held by junior members. If informed selection is to
be possible it is desirable that when giving notice of
the wish to be called a junior member should indicate
(a) whether he or she intends to support or
oppose the motion before the House, (b) whether
he or she would speak on behalf of any club, committee,
group, or association, (c) whether he or she is
supported by other junior members (up to twelve of whom
might sign the notice).

If the number giving notice is small they will all
be admitted to the floor of the House although this does
not ensure their being called. In other cases some
selection may be necessary at the stages of both
admission and calling of speakers. If there is to be time
to tell applicants whether they will be admitted notice
will have to be received in good time. Junior members
should therefore send in such notice, in writing, to the
Registrar to be received at the University Offices not
later than 10 a.m. on the Monday preceding the debate in
question. The name of any representative nominated by
OUSU should also be communicated to the Registrar, in
writing, through the President by that time. A notice
will then be posted in the University Offices and on the
gate of the Clarendon Building not later than 10 a.m. on
the morning of the debate, indicating whether all
applicants will be admitted to the floor of the House or,
if selection has had to take place, the names of those
selected for admission to the floor.

Junior members not admitted to the floor of the
House will normally be permitted to listen to the debate
from the gallery. Junior members on the floor of the
House will be asked to remain in their places while a
vote is being taken.

Under Tit. XIV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2, junior
members are defined as `those persons who, having been
admitted to matriculation, are residing to fulfil the
requirements of any statute, decree, or regulation of the
University or reading for any degree, diploma, or
certificate of the University and who have not proceeded
to membership of Convocation'. (Membership of Convocation
is normally obtained by taking the MA degree.)

OPPENHEIMER FUND

The Oppenheimer Fund provides grants to assist the academic
exchange of senior members between the University of Oxford on
the one hand and universities and similar institutions of higher
education in the Republic of South Africa on the other.
Applications are invited from senior members of the University
who wish either to visit one or more universities in South Africa
or to invite a staff member from a South African university to
Oxford. Grants may be awarded to assist with living expenses for
a maximum of six months, and travel costs. Visits for the sole
purpose of attending a conference will not normally be eligible
for support from the fund.

The maximum level of grants is likely to be up to £1,000
per month for subsistence and up to £700 for the cost of
travel between Oxford and South Africa. Applications for grants
from the fund should include a statement of the purpose of the
proposed visit, duration and estimated costs, details of any
other available sources of funding, and, in the case of visits
to Oxford, a curriculum vitae of the staff member
it is proposed to invite and a letter of support from a senior
member at Oxford. Applications should be sent to the
