Sub plan criticised

Sub plan criticised

The Student Union Planning Committee has been requested by Exec. to meet and "explain the plans of the Sub and to consider possible modifications".

At Exec. meetings 6 and 9 August the proposed Sub extensions were discussed without reaching any other decision.

Student John Barnett, who was granted speaking rights, told the first meeting that the proposed extensions "catered for the caterers".

He said that the plans were out keeping with the neighbouring buildings, and that they would merely repeat the mistakes embodied in the present Sub.

At the second meeting, University Vice-Principal Dr S. G. Culliford attended to provide further information.

Doug White moved the recission of earlier motions, which he said would have the effect of delaying work.

Major changes in the plan would result in loss of the government subsidy, which had just been granted after two years' delay.

The motion was passed 6-4, after opposition from Owen Gager and Dan Bradshaw.

After rejecting a second motion urging the University Council to immediately call tenders for the extensions, Exec. passed the motion requesting the Planning Committee to meet.
