Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington. Vol. 21, No. 8. 2nd July, 1958

Sports Council

Sports Council

Mr. Zohrab (Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Sports Council) reported to the Exec. on the recommendations of the sub-committee. It was pointed out by Mr. Marchant that the section relating to the Blues Panel would require action by the A.G.M.

Although it was possible for the Draft regulations to be authorised by the Executive, Mr. Zohrab thought that for solidarity for the Sports Council the draft regulations should be incorporated in the Constitution proper. However, it was generally thought that for the trial period of this body it would be better for the Exec. to hold the power to alter the regulations as such.

At this point a long, and in some cases heated, discussion followed on the use of sub-committees. Two points of view were put to the meeting.

(1)That the ratification of recommendations from a sub-committee by the Executive should be an automatic procedure. This would eliminate the repetition of discussion as is the case where the Exec. insist on going over all recommendations fairly closely.
(2)That the Executive should not commit itself to proposals without full consideration.

In the case of the sports council the greatest difficulty was found with the section dealing with powers of various bodies to alter the regulations. After long discussion, with O'Brien generously throwing dissensions about, the position returned to the original, though the actual wording was altered slightly.
