Report from the Constitutional Standing Committee meeting of 18 October 2018

Chaired by David Munro, the Constitutional Standing Committee held its first meeting of the session on 18th October. The main item on the agenda was to hear from Dr Lewis Allan, Head of University Court Services, about changes to the University's Ordinances, particularly those affecting the composition of the University Court which had been approved 'in principle' by the General Council at its Half-Yearly Meeting in February 2018. There followed a full discussion on the new draft Ordinance which was approved by the Business Committee on 11th October and is available for public consultation until 26th November.  Following this discussion, the committee agreed its work plan for the coming session which will focus on reviewing and updating the Constitutional Arrangements for the working of the General Council and its Business Committee.
