Procesh abolished by SRC

In moving a motion "that Procesh be abolished" at an SRC meeting on 28 May, Association President Margaret Bryson said that Procesh was a disgrace and that both students and the public were tired of it.

Miss Bryson said that claims for damage arising from Procesh totalling nearly $1000 had been received. "We still do not know whether to pay them" she said.

No speakers opposed the motion which was passed by 103 votes to 74.

Commenting on the decision, the Social Controller, John Mowbray, said that it could not be regarded .as final, and would have to be made again next year by the SRC or its equivalent. He added that, as he was misinformed of the position of the motion on the agenda, he did not have an opportunity to speak at the meeting.

Graeme Sutherland. 1970 Procesh Controller, said that the abolition of Procesh itself was unjustified but that the SRC was justified in making the move in view of the vandalism after Procesh. He felt that, because of this damage, the decision was inevitable.
