Lecturers' Representation was discussed at a special meeting of the Lecturers' Association on Monday 20 April.
Speaking to the motion, That this Association reaffirm its traditional policy of seeking representation for lecturers on all University committees and, in particular, on the Joint Committee. Mr N. Wright said the motion was intended as a rebuke to the executive of the Lecturers' Association.
Dr T. Beaglehole said that a meeting of the Lecturers' Association last year decided against seeking representation for lecturers on the Deans Committee. Dr Beaglehole said the aim should not be to Infiltrete the Deans Committee but to smash it.
The motion was defeated.
Speaking to the motion. That this Association has no confidence in the present executive, Mr N. Wright said that the executive of the Lecturers' Association was not responsible to any AGM or SGM, and so it was farcical that other university bodies should call upon the executive of the Lecturers' Association lo give expression to the views of lecturers.
The motion lapsed for want of a seconder.
