Committee on Statutes before the Privy Council

The Committee on Statutes before the Privy Council reports on whether statutes made by colleges under the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge Act, 1923, directly affect the University within the meaning of section 46 of the Schedule to the Act, or constitute alterations of statutes which affect the University within the meaning of section 7 (2) of the Act.

The Committee also draws attention to the implications, if any, which alterations to college statutes may have for the University and colleges as a whole.
