|1.||That the number of councillors be increased so that those who are seconded to the Management Committee sit on no other sub-committee. This remedy would need an Act of Parliament to amend the Victoria University College Act of 1933 and it is therefore not practical.|
|2.||That a separate board of seven trustees be appointed to meet at least four times in each year. This board should include four members of the College Council and three persons nominated by the Weir House Students' Committee until such time as the ex-residents formed an association which would then appoint the three non-council members. In addition to the seven trustees, the Warden and President of Weir House should be non-voting members ex officio.|
I consider that it is time that the College Council assessed the value and effectiveness of the present methods of administration of Weir House, for if it is to fully serve its proper function changes may be necessary. I firmly believe that there is that need for revision and adjustment and the foregoing comments and suggestions have been made in the knowledge that fair and just criticism is of value to anybody who endeavours to serve the best interests of the Trust which it administers and the wishes of the benefactor who created it.
