Chemistry Dept. claimed 'inert'

Chemistry Dept. claimed 'inert'

A motion that the Chemistry Department is inert will be moved at the SGM tomorrow by the men's vice-president-elect of the Student Association, Colin Knox.

"Don't print a bloody word about the motion until terms are posted,,' said Mr Knox.

He said that the motion was not directed at the staff of the Chemistry Department which "must surely be one of the most highly qualified and best organised in New Zealand".

Mr Knox said that he was moving the motion because "it was an election promise".

He said it remained to be seen whether he would vote for the motion.

This depended on the arguments raised.

He said that the motion referred to the "inertness" of chemistry students with respect to participation in student affairs. If chemistry students came to the SGM and voted the motion down this would demonstrate a greater interest in student affairs, Mr Knox said.
