Cancellation of the General Council Half-Yearly Meeting

In response to the rapidly evolving impact of Covid-19 and with the health and safety of our staff, students and visitors in mind, we have taken the disappointing decision to cancel the next scheduled meeting of the General Council on Saturday 13 June 2020.

Papers for this meeting are contained within the summer edition of Billet, along with information about forthcoming meetings and elections.

Both Billet and Annex will be posted on the General Council website - in the ‘Publications’ tab - here:
