Dear all,

The Senior Committee wished to point out the following about the
proposal to change eligibility criteria sent yesterday:

"The SC had a substantial discussion of Megan Eldred's proposal and
its potential for wider impact beyond the alleviation of the initial
situation at St Edmund's that prompted it. It was appreciated that
Megan had tried to word the proposal carefully to avoid the kind of
'free for all' situation with exceptionals that the SC fears, but it
was noted that even from the limited number of individual college
situations know personally by the SC members, it would be very easy to
circumvent the spirit of the rule within its current wording.

After a lengthy discussion between the SC members, we concluded that
in order to address this issue fully, we should ideally be in
possession of a complete set of facts relating to the relevant college
membership categories. If the motion is passed, we will therefore
request that each Captain returns a report of the relevant categories
of membership at their particular college (covering the affiliations
possible to PDRAs and other relevant categories of senior membership
for example bye-fellowship and college lecturer status). It would be
useful to know the titles used, the requirements of the posts and
their level of formality (i.e. by which bodies within the college the
membership is approved or elected) as well as the number of people
involved in each.

>From the exceptionals already requested for this Mays, we understand
that this matter does need a conclusion in advance of next Lent Term,
so will ask for this information to be submitted as soon as feasible
in order that there is enough time to return with the captains to the
matter on this time scale.

As one final comment, it was noted that the currently proposed wording
for the rule change would prevent fellows' VIIIs, which we are keen to
avoid explicitly preventing from entering, and hence careful wording
on this point will be needed in the final drafting of changes
resulting from this process."

Further proposals for vote will be circulated later today.
