*Since no married members of the MCR came forward to stand for this position, and in the interests of inclusivity and in line with the MCR Committees of other colleges, a motion has been brought forward to amend the constitution and broaden the definition of this portfolio. For full details see the attached document: MCR constitution amendment (‘MCR Constitution amendment‘). There will therefore be a brief Open Meeting at the start of Hustings where people can vote for or against the amendment. Any other appropriate motions must be emailed to our secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) 72 hours in advance of the Open Meeting.
