Salient. Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 26, No. 7. Tuesday, June 18, 1963

Special Tactics Needed

Special Tactics Needed

NZUSA will have to adopt "trade union techniques" to get action on Halls of Residence, said NZUSA Secretary W. Falconer to Council.

Falconer advocated a three-stage "pressure programme" to get a policy statement from the Government:
  • Send a delegation to the Minister of Education and ask for the Government's stand. Inform the Press of the negotiations.
  • Get constituent Associations to approach their local MPs to ask questions in the House.
  • Suggest to rural MPs the possibility of local Halls in Universities—Taranaki House at Victoria was one suggestion.

"One man will need to do a lot of work on this," said Falconer. He suggested that a senior student at Victoria might have to devote all his time to the job.

A motion directing an officer of the Association to develop the "pressure programme" was passed by the meeting on the recommendation of the Internal Affairs sub-committee.
