Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 7. 1965.
Breakfast will not be available to students in the cafeteria for some time yet.
The idea was discussed at a recent meeting of the Union Management Committee, but was rejected.
"It would be very difficult to provide an economically priced breakfast," the Union Management Secretary, Mr. Ian Boyd, told Salient. "Extra staff would have to be hired by the caterer."
The management committee approved a proposal for Saturday opening of the cafeteria on a trial basis during the second term. The cafeteria will be open from 10.30am to 1.30pm and a service similar to that provided over vacation just past will be provided.
Slightly higher prices will be charged as a result of the award rates for Saturday labour.
"We have been pleasantly surprised by the success of the vacation opening of the Lunch Room." Mr. Boyd commented "and we shall be watching with interest the reaction to Saturday opening."
