White attacks Gager

White attacks Gager

The President of the Students' Association, Doug White, has criticised Owen Gager for remarks made at Forum about the strength of the student delegation on the Committee on Student Participation.

Doug has said that the student representatives were appointed at the Agm.

He accused Owen of passing judgement on student representatives on their performance at the first meeting of the committee, at which Owen was not present.

He said Owen was consulted during the preparation of the submissions made by students in the committee, and at no time said the submissions were weak.

Owen denied saying that the student delegation was weak.

"I have not for I cannot see them in action.

"I did quote University staff sources as saying it was weak," he said.

"I had a duty to inform students this view was held; the onus is on those who feel I should have kept quiet to explain why they prefer silence on questions of this importance."
