Statement from the Union President on the Policy Process

I have been asked to consider a complaint about a breach of bye-laws in relation to the role of Policy Coordinator and the PRG. Regrettably, until the matter is resolved, I am not confident that the policy process can be run fairly and have therefore suspended the  process. This suspension is subject to the outcome of an investigation, which is now underway.

I am not confident that the process can be run fairly, or in the best interests of student members while a complaint of this nature remains outstanding. The suspension is not a decision I have taken lightly, I have given this considerable thought but regrettably feel I have no other option at this point.

I will do everything I can to make this as swift a process as possible. I appreciate a lot of time and effort has gone into these policy proposals, but the integrity of the process is my absolute priority and is something I will not compromise under any circumstances.
