Dear all,

I would just like to clarify that we did receive these comments from the SC prior to revising the Proposal, and did indeed make the changes in the wording necessary as to not explicitly prevent fellows VIIIs from taking part in the bumps. 

Please see point 1c. and in particular the sentence as copied below:

'That no more than two such other members of the University who are Employees or elected or appointed Members of a college will be allowed to row in any boat.'

This therefore does not exclude more than two fellows rowing in any boat.

If you have any further questions, please do get in touch.

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.

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.
